Thanks

2009 Covenant Cabernet Sauvignon Kosher (USA, California, Napa Valley) --> 2017 (these wines have a GREAT track record even if 2009 was not as good a year)
2009 Herzog Cabernet Sauvignon Single Vineyard Mt. Veeder (USA, California, Napa Valley, Mt. Veeder) --> 2016 solid body, acid, and tannin
2010 Brobdingnagian Wines Grenache Santa Barbara County (USA, California, Central Coast, Santa Barbara County) --> 2016 I would not push it with this one, the wine is ready to go drink it. This may be Brob's weakes - 2010 and 2011 were tough years.
2009 Segals Cabernet Sauvignon Unfiltered Kosher (Israel, Galilee, Upper Galilee) --> I personally could care less for this wine, but the body is there, 2018
2010 Brobdingnagian Wines Syrah (USA, California, Sonoma County) --> Same as the Greancje, though with more body, still 2016 and be happy
2009 Binyamina Cabernet Sauvignon The Cave, Old Vine (Israel, Galilee) --> Once again a total pass wine for me, 2016 at most. Others love this wine.
2011 Celler de Capçanes Montsant La Flor del Flor de Primavera (Spain, Catalunya, Tarragona, Montsant) --> THIS WINE IS SICK The best wine of the list by far, the body is medium but the tannins are crazy and a wine that should be here till 2020 at least.
