On my blog: http://kosherwinemusings.com/2008/08/08/tzora-goose-bay-and-rothberg-cellars/ I wrote this TN:

Tzora Single Vineyard Shoresh 2004 - Score A-
The nose on this garnet colored wine (100% Merlot) is laden with red berries, mineral aromas, cherry, and wood. The mouth on this medium bodied wine starts with tight tannins - though integrating and a strong and slightly complex attack of black cherry, and blackberry. The middle is filled with green, earth, and licorice. The finish is long and woodsy. This has changed since I last tasted it. If tasting blindly - I would have thought this to be a Cabernet Sauvignon. The licorice was a giveaway that it was not a cab - but still the earth, dense fruit, and cab like fruit - makes made do a double take.

Zvi, Hi....


My own most recent tasting note follows.

Best
Rogov

Tzora Vineyards, Merlot, Shoresh, 2004: This single-vineyard release is medium to full-bodied, and oak-aged for 24 months. Showing generous wood but soft tannins, and appealing blackberry and black cherry fruits on a background of spices, dark chocolate and licorice. Drink now. Score 86. K (Re-tasted 15 Jun 2008)
