Tasting Notes

Created from a blend of 67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, and 13% Syrah, Barkan's Assemblage offers a great example of an old world style Ermitage wine.   Sourced from great vineyards in one of the best Terroirs in Israel, Barkan has embraced its mediterranean roots and created one their best wines to date.  Aged for 10 months the Raichan is a luscious yet powerful wine with hints of dark cassis and mediterranean herbs.   This wine is had become one of my favorite wines out of Barkan and it drinks well with grilled meats, sharp cheeses, and spiced chocolate.    I

expect his wine to be able to age well for the next 4-5 years and I look forward to tasting next years vintage!
