From the old forum - these are Daniel's latest notes:

Barkan, Cabernet Sauvignon, Superieur, 2003: Dark, almost impenetrable royal-purple in color, Firm and concentrated, this is one of the best ever from Barkan. Full-bodied, with gently mouth-coating tannins and a judicious hand with spicy oak, shows intense aromas and flavors of black currants,
blackberries and black cherries, those complemented by hints of dates, sage and near-sweet cedar wood. A long chocolate and tobacco finish bursting with minerals and black fruits. Drink now–2010. Score 91. K (Re-tasted 5 Mar 2008)

Mes’cha, 2003: A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Merlot (75%, 15% and 10% respectively), this deep garnet, medium to full-bodied wine reflects its 18 months in oak with tannins and spicy wood integrating and opening to reveal black currant, berry and plum fruits on a background of spicy wood and Mediterranean herbs. Generous, well balanced and long. Drink now–2011. Score 90. K

Note - this last note is old - so may want a newer one:
Tabor Cabernet Sauvignon, Adama, Terra Rossa, 2003: Dark royal purple, almost inky, this medium to full-bodied red is already showing appealing currant, cherry and spice flavors and aromas. Inherent good balance between soft tannins, acidity and fruits and an appealing spicy finish. Drink now–2007. Score 87. K
