In response to Gabriel. Firstly I recently was lucky enough to be in Isael. Was dissapointed not to have stopped by the winemill. Respecting your wish not to elaborate you can I'm -in all fairness to Tulip what specificly caused you to feel that way. Noticed tzion creek recvd same rating from you. Seems like a level below simple quaffer. H

Harry, I'm confident we'll have an opportunity to meet in the future, either in israel or in NYC.

Regarding the Tulip Just CabSav 2011, I tasted it at the Jerusalem wine festival a year ago. It had VA (volatile acidity), dull and totally out of balance. I was very disappointed as I liked very much the 2010.

Best,

Unfortunately, I have to agree - the 2010 was much better. I say unfortunately because I purchased several 2011s based on the 2010.
