The Psagot Edom is a wonderful blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot harvested from choice vineyards in the Jerusalem Hills. Lighter in body and more refined than many of the Bordeaux blends from the North, this wine offers structured tannins and and a smooth finish.
With notes of wild raspberries, mocha, and five spice, the Psagot Edom draws its flavor from its rich Terroir and dry mountains climate that stretches across the Judean mountains. This is the second time that I have tasted this wine since it was bottled and it is a perfect red for the warm spring and hot summer months.
This red should pair well with any classic mediterranean meal is especially good with grilled salmon and roasted vegetables.
