My most recent tasting notes for both wines follow.

Best
Rogov

Golan Heights Winery, Cabernet Sauvignon, Yarden, 2005: Brooding dark ruby-red, full-bodied, with near-sweet tannins and spicy oak wrapped around black currants, berries, spices and a hint of dark chocolate. Look as well for enchanting hints of citrus peel and vanilla on the long finish. Fine balance and structure bode well for the future. Best 2010–2018. Score 92. K

Golan HeightsWinery, Pinot Noir, Yarden, 2004: Dark ruby towards garnet, medium to full-bodied, with well-integrated soft tannins and showing a generous array of blackberry, plum and black cherry fruits, those supported very nicely by hints of pine nuts. On the fruity finish a tantalizing hint of anise. Drink now–2012. Score 90. K

as they say in the hood"now thats what im talking 'bout".under $30 but read those TN's that's good value;not like many other wines where the price tag is $50 or more & the TN isnt anywhere as interesting.

A little birdie tells me that the 2005 Yarden will be hitting the shelves in stores all around the US in the coming weeks and has been in circulation for a few weeks already.

And speaking of Yarden, that same birdie tells me that the 2004 El Rom's are on their way and may be appearing in time for Rosh Hashana...

Yaakov, Hi...

There were two Yarden Cabernet Sauvignon releases in 2004 - the regular Yarden and the single vineyard Elrom Vineyard. Both tasting notes follow.

Best
Rogov


Yarden, Cabernet Sauvignon, Elrom Vineyard, 2004: Full-bodied, with still firm tannins and spicy wood well on the way to integrating and al-ready showing elegance and finesse. Look for layer after layer of currant, blackberry and wild berry fruits, those supported beautifully by notes of cedar, sage and tar, all leading to a near-sweet fruity finish that lingers on and on. Approachable now but best 2010–2016. Score 94. K

Yarden, Cabernet Sauvignon, 2004: Dark, almost impenetrable garnet, with generous wood in fine balance with acidity and fruits. Opens to show currants and crushed berries, those yielding to cranberries, ripe purple plums and dark chocolate, all on a background of spices, as-phalt and earthiness. Drink now–2016. Score 92. K
