Anyone know anything about this winery and its wines?

Saw it on sale recently. Does it go by another name in Israel?

Matt, Hi....

Ben-Ami is not a winery. It is one of the series produced by Segal Wines which in itself is wholly owned by Barkan Wineries.

If you send details on the specific wines you have found (varietals, blends, generic names and vintage years), I'll be glad to post tasting notes.

Thanks Daniel!!!

Saw ads for the Ben Ami 2004 CS and Merlot on KW.com. $6.49/bottle. I guess that probably indicates that they are approaching the end of their drinkable age.

Matt, Hi....

Following are my latest tasting notes for the wines in question. The tastings were made about 4 months ago and as you will see they are in a "drink up" condition.

Ben Ami, Cabernet Sauvignon, 2004: Medium-bodied, with soft tannins and generous hints of smoky wood opening to reveal wild berry, currant and cassis fruits. Drink up. Score 85. K

Ben Ami, Merlot, 2004: Garnet red with a first hint of browning, continuing to show soft tannins and black fruits. A simple entry-level wine. Drink up. Score 83. K
