Carmel, Shiraz, Single Vineyard, Kayoumi, Upper Galilee, 2006: Showing even better than at earlier tastings. Deep garnet with hints of royal purple and casting orange and green reflections, a concentrated wine, full-bodied and deeply extracted yet showing remarkably soft tannins and spicy wood that almost melts on the palate. On first attack plums and currants, those making way for black cherries, hints of saddle leather and notes of asphalt. On the long and generous finish with tannins rising a comfortable overlay of freshly roasted herbs and cedar wood. Approachable now but what a waste as this one will start showing its best only in 2011. Cellar comfortably until 2017. NIS 120. Score 93. K (Re-tasted 9 Jun 2009)

Yatir, Shiraz, 2006: Blended with 15% Malbec, aged in barriques for 12 months, showing full-bodied and concentrated with still firm tannins that need time to settle in. Showing fine balance and structure, the tannins integrating nicely now with a gentle spicy wood influence and opening in the glass to show blackberry, black cherry and prune notes, those on a background that hints of grilled beef and dark chocolate. Best 2010–2017. NIS 134. Score 93. K (Re-tasted 22 May 2009))
Apologies, but let me delve further into psychology and relate to the article by Miehl entitled: Schizotypia, Schizotaxia, Schizophrenia. The first part of Miehl's hypothesis indicated that one is or is not born with the genetic composition that will allow for the development of schizophrenia. The person born without it may become quite mad in quite a few ways but he/she will never become schiziophrenic.
The person born with the gene on the other hand is said to be schizotypic (i.e. having the genetic ability to develop schizophrenia). That is no guarantee that that person will become schizophrenic. What is then required are two levels of interaction with the environment, the most important of which Miehl called "the schizophrenogenic mother" (a mother or other parenting figure that presents a child with traditional double-bind dilemmas) and this in turn brings the child to the state of schizotaxia. The shizotaxic is not a full-blown schizophrenic but is probably what would most could call a thoroughly neurotic person. Only with a later secondary environmental interaction does the person go on to become a full-blown schizophrenic.
Knudson suggested that multiple "hits" to DNA were necessary to cause cancer. In the children with inherited retinoblastoma, the first insult was inherited in the DNA, and any second insult would rapidly lead to cancer. In non-inherited retinoblastoma, two "hits" had to take place before a tumor could develop, explaining the age difference.

Is it available in the US? I cannot recall seeing the 2006 version...
