Indeed saw it in Chicago and had it - it is OK - a nice example of a light Barbera, nothing explosive or exciting, a B+ wine at the best.

Tasted once at the Jerusalem Wine festival last July:

GMW, Barbera 2010: Dark garnet towards ruby, good concentration with notes of wet dirt and redcurrants, medium-bodied with on the palate strawberries and redcurrants along with notes of cigar tobacco and near sweet tannins in good balance with sufficient acidity leading to a moderately long finish.

Nothing like the Ramot Naftali but not bad either for the price.

Best,

GG

I tasted to 2008 Galil Mountain Barbera and wrote about it on my blog. Here's the link: http://wp.me/p1Dfhj-8W They describe their version of this varietal as "softer" compared to other Barbera's. They called it the "Zionist Barbera."

Looking forward to opening it again for a re-tasting, after this year of aging in our wine cellar. Also looking forward to tasting the more recent vintage so eloquently described by Gabe.

Hi Dan, let me for once give it a score to avoid jumping to conclusions too quickly:

Galil Mountains Barbera 2010: 87-88.

Tasted at its release, late last July:

Fruity, spicy, wide, slightly low on acidity, a lot of fruit and a generous touch of roasted oak. Soft, tasty and with character. A Barbera character with an Israeli style. Worth a try, chill it a bit before serving.

If anyone's interested I can link to my Hebrew TNs for this and other GM wines from that release.
