Adam thanks for responding.

You have a clear set of well defined preferences and things you don't like to see as well. I gather from your list you only drink aged reds?

Among the tings you like or at least accept, "cloudiness" would be a pretty big no-no for me... I am talking about aged wine after it's settled and been decanted, of course.
Life is too short to drink bad wine.

Hi Lewis - thanks for your message. You guess right, I don't age dry white wine very much. The cloudiness aged wine I ever had was a old Bustan merlot. It was alomost milky. The wine was rocking with smokey chocolate. I recall that a few months later the wine started deteriorating rapidly - and that was the end of that good thing. Haven't come across a beautiful cloudy aged wine since....

Popped open a 2005 Galil Mountain Yiron that i picked up in Tel Aviv. It is truly a pleasure .and worth every penny of 159 NIS. Cant imagine it getting any better. Will be promptly be effectuating the demise of the available stock by week's end.

As mentioned in another thread, I recently had the opportunity (thanks to Yossie Horowitz) to taste the '00, '03, and '04 Katzrins. While the '00 was truly spectacular and really lived up to the best of what Israel can offer, the '03 and '04 were rather disappointing, with the wines having turned quite sweet. I can't see either wine holding up much longer.
On the other hand, at the same event an 04 Yiron Syrah was poured and it was fresh, vibrant and absolutely delicious!

I had the pleasure of enjoying 6 bottles of 2005 Galil Mountain Yiron while in Israel over the past month. I purchased the bottles from the Wine & More store on Ben Yehuda just a block or two south of Nordau. The shop manager was very nice. I can't recall exactly, but I think I paid something like NIS 149 with a 5% or so discount.

The wine is fantastic. Loved by all. Lots of sentiment, though; so watch out!

Yossie Shalom,

You are correct about most vintages for the ones that you listed. However, I would like to vouch for the El Rom, 2009 that was released in the past year and it is "ready." Personally, I don't like it as much though. . .

Best wishes,
E.Y.

E.Y - the 2009 El Rom is Sick!!! The blueberry and blackberry are luscious and wonderful, IMO (not so humble sorry) :lol:
