Domaine du Castel - Grand Vin Haute-Judée Dry Red Wine
The Castel Grand Vin is a 90+ rated wine from the famed Judean Hills region in Israel. It is one of the most consistent high-end wines produced in Israel. The varieties used to create this wine are Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, and Cabernet Franc, harvested from the winery's finest vineyard plots. The wine matured in mostly new French oak barrels for approximately 16 months, and was then transferred to concrete tanks for approximately 4 months before bottling. Castel Grand Vin is a classic, elegant wine, bearing deep color and a concentrated and complex bouquet of blackberries, cherries, plum, and spice. This is a balanced wine, with a velvety smoothness, fine (yet tangible) tannins, and a long clean finish. The Castel Grand Vin can age for 10+ years when stored in proper conditions.
