Menach, Hi....

My most recent tasting notes (within the past four months) for the wines of 1998, 1999 and 2000 follow

Best
Rogov

Yarden, Cabernet Sauvignon, 2000: Full-bodied, still youthful, with firm tannins and generous oak well balanced by currants, blackberries and spicy cedarwood, those opening to plums and black cherries, all matched nicely with vanilla and an appealing herbal overlay followed by a long finish. Drink now–2011. Score 92. K

Yarden, Cabernet Sauvignon, 1999: With once-firm tannins now sof-tening and showing fine balance between wood and fruits, the wine is opening beautifully. Deep royal-purple toward garnet in color with delicious aromas and flavors of black berries and cherries on a back-ground of vanilla and sweet cedar wood, as well as a hint of freshly roasted coffee on its long finish. Drink now. Score 92. K

Yarden, Cabernet Sauvignon, 1998: Full-bodied, deep in color and remarkably intense, with aromas and flavors of currant, plum, black cherry, vanilla and lightly toasted oak as well as excellent balance between fruits, wood and tannins. On the long finish mineral-earthy overtones and an appealing hint of anise. Maturing beautifully. Drink now. Score 91. K
