Because it is a less sweet cab based wine, I wouldn't sip it like a liqueur and expect it to last a while. I think It will begin to decline after a few days. And for the same reasons, you can drink a lot more of it than a typical sweet wine without the cloying feeling. This is all conjecture though because whenever I've opened a bottle at the Shabbos table, it was quickly consumed.
I tried the blend but the bottle I got from a friend who shlepped it over was older and a bit over the hill (not sure how long my friend had it and it probably was left in the Israeli heat) so I can't really say much about it.

Do you to tastings at your wine shop? How about a blind tasting of all the port-style wines of Israel? I'd make the shlep down to Jerusalem for that. The other winery that makes a good one is Adir, though for my part the Har Odem Shani as the best.
