Menach, Hi....

Indeed the wine is in a "drink up" mode but if it has been stored well it should drink up quite nicely indeed. Best bet is not to decant but to open the bottle some 30-40 minutes before serving and then to pour directly into the glasses. The wine should easily outlive the meal.

Best

Yarden, Cabernet Sauvignon, 1997: This traditional Yarden blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot and 1% Cabernet Franc is now fully mature but continues to show an overall firm structure and good balance between soft tannins, fruits, wood and acidity. Plenty of Cab-ernet currants along with blackberries and plums on the first attack, those yielding to gentle overlays of spices and Mediterranean herbs. Not for further cellaring. Drink up. Score 89.

Hi,
very exited and opened a Yarden cabernet sauvignon 1997, when opened it had no btl stink and deep aromas of dark fruit and chocolate, the corck was nice and in great condition with no signs of leakage, left the wine open for about an hour, then ... enjoyed a luvly wine !1 med to full body very round and polished, a nice dose of black fruit and currants, especially black berry and on the nice gentle long'ish finish notes of green olive and some minty ecalyptus notes, which made the wine turn out to be DELIZIOSO !! no signs of age until 3 hrs later a bit of the finish. really enjoyed !!

Thank you agin Rogov for the advice it turned out to be a delight, just pittie my guest didnt make, so i had to finish the btl my self :cry: :mrgreen:

be well ciao
