Zvi, Hi...

Following are my most recent tasting notes (25 Sep 2008) for the wines in question.

Rogov

Binyamina, Tiltan, n.v.: As is becoming traditional, a blend not of different grapes but of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from three different vintage years, in this case from 2004, 2005 and 2006. Developed in barriques for 18 months, showing generous but not at all offensive sweet cedar wood and moderately gripping tannins that yield nicely to show blackberry, blackcurrant and orange peel notes, all on a light background of green olives and eucalyptus. Drink now-2011. Score 88. K

Binyamina, Tiltan, n.v.: Made from Cabernet Sauvignon grapes harvested in the 2003, 2004 and 2005 harvests, each developed in wood for a different period of time. Full-bodied, with soft, caressing tannins and a moderate hand with peppery wood, the wine opens on the palate to reveal currants, black cherries and herbal aromas and flavors, all of which are concentrated but not heavy. Finishes with generous tannins and an appealing hint of sage. Drink now–2012. Score 90. K

Binyamina, Tiltan, n.v.: Made from Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from the 2002, 2003 and 2004 vintages, this medium to full-bodied blend shows generous wood and tannins, those in good balance with spicy and lightly earthy black fruits. On the finish, nice hints of herbs and vanilla. Drink now. Score 88. K
