Has anyone tried the new Yogev Cab/Syrah from Binyamina? I got a bottle of the 2006 as a gift, and was very disappointed by it.

Perhaps it was just a bad bottle, but it tasted alcoholic and astringent to me. Little fruit to make it appealing.

A bit of surprise, because the wine should show more balance than what I perceive from you, Matt.
It's not the best in the Yogev series but still, a decent one.
I'm sure Rogov could help with a detailed WTN but IMO the wine might just be too young at this stage.

The Yogev may also have suffered by the fact that we tried it right after having had a bottle of the Yiron 2001 which was truly delicious.

Matt, Hi...


When you relate to "new" releases is it the 2006 or 2007 wine in question? Binyamina released the 2007 Yogev wines (Cabernet-Shiraz; Cabernet-Merlot and Cabernet -Petite Verdot), four days ago. Those wines are resting for a few days before tasting and then I shall post.

On the chance that it truly was the 2006, my tasting note follows.

Best
Rogov

Binyamina, Cabernet Sauvignon-Shiraz, Yogev, 2006: Medium to full-bodied, with soft tannins and hints of vanilla from the oak in which it aged. On the nose and palate berry, black cherry and a light meaty overtone. Drink now. Score 87. K

It was the 2006. I guess that "chacun selon son goût" applies.
