Yarden T2 - Definitely Worth Trying (K)

by Daniel Rogov » Thu Aug 18, 2011 11:22 am

Not everyone is going to appreciate the relatively recently released Yarden T2, and that perhaps largely because one almost has to develop a somewhat special need to involve with two Portuguese varieties, Tinta Cao and Touriga Nacional, both relative strangers to Israel. Whatever, the two varieties are most surely among the best of Portugal and produce an increasing number of deep, full-bodied, red wines of both quality and interest.

I am at least partially convinced that using this combination started as an experiment on the part of Victor Shoenfeld and his winemaking staff. That the combination turns out to be one of the most unique in the country cannot, no matter what one thinks of the wine on his/her palate, make it one of the most fascinating releases in the country in the last 20 years.

Yarden, T2, 2008: Full-boied, deep garnet with a rim that might be of black cherries, full-bodied, opening with gripping tannins, those parting gently in the glass. On the opening nose a rich cherry note, that parting to make way for generous aromas and flavors of chocolate, lightly burned espresso coffee and spices, all coming together in a thoroughly coherent whole. Long and generous, best possible match for this wine will be a fine cheese platter, the cheeses served with butter and on crispy bread. Drink now-2017. Score 91. (K)

Daniel: Are you sure this is 2006? The info I had from the winery was about a 2008 release.

Hi Mike.
I purchased this wine last week at the new branch of Shirat HaYayin at the Kenyon HaGadol in Petach Tikvah.
It is indeed the 2008 vintage and the name is "2T".
This new Shirat HaYayin store has an excellent selection of kosher wines.
