We also enjoyed the newly released 2009 Hevron Heights Isaac's Ram. The same earthy chocolate notes that is present in the 2007 vintage.

Honestly, I can't understand the references. Bloody, red meat is one thing, nice in small concentrations, but carcasses and road kill bring to mind intestinal contents spilled all over the place, not the prettiest picture.
Adam M wrote:Hi Gabriel - now that is straining my memory slightly out of my comfort zone (especially considering I'm recently home from the neighborhood pub where for the past 3 hours I watched my football team perish in overtime in a critical end of season game). At a high level, I would say that the wine stays true to its earthy quality but at this point in its life is showing more prominent chocolate notes than I recall the 2005 vintage. It's more along the lines of the 2007 in this regard. Whatever,the 09 is very enjoyable. I would recommend that you make a visit to Eli Bashan's at the shuk and ask them for a blue cheese that is similar to the non-kosher (but vegan) Stilton blue cheese from England. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised at how nicely this particular wine pairs.

As for the port: here, you've thrown me a softball: Teperberg Nevel
