Simple enough. Two good even excellent wines but the Cabernet Sauvignon carries the notation "fine balance and structure bode well for the future". The Merlot is well balanced but somewhat lighter in weight and without the required structure for longer-term development. It is also possible to state that as a rule (but with some exceptions) Israeli Cabernet tends to cellar longer than Merlot.
