Menachem, Hi....


Following are my most recent tasting notes (within the last 6 - 8 months) for the wines in question.

Best
Rogov



Carmel, Single Vineyard, Cabernet Sauvignon, Kayoumi, 2004: Aged in oak for 15 months, the wine is dark, almost impenetrable purple in color. Firm tannins and smoky wood come together with currant, blackberry, plum and mineral aromas and flavors, those showing hints of Mediter-ranean herbs and light Oriental spices. Long and generous. Drink now–2012. Score 91. K

Carmel, Single Vineyard, Cabernet Sauvignon, Kayoumi, 2003: Luscious and elegant, deep garnet, full-bodied and softly tannic. The nose and pal-ate are still showing the black currant, berry and spicy wood that were here but now these are complemented by hints of smoked meat, to-gether with oriental spices and tobacco. Long and complex. Drink now–2014. Score 92. K

Thanks - what a winner

I presume the 2004 is full bodied as well?

Also, is there a 2005 yet?

Menachem, Hi...


Indeed the 2004 is a full-bodied wine. As to the 2005, which is now on local shelves in Israel, my most recent tasting note follows.

Rogov

Carmel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Single Vineyard, Kayoumi, 2005: Dark garnet with green and orange reflections, full-bodied, open textured and generous showing a spicy, peppery mouthful of blackberry, currant, coffee and black olive notes all leading to a long, round and mouth-filling finish on which one finds an appealing note of vanilla. Oak aged for 15 months. As this one develops in the bottle look for an appealing hint of smoked meat. Drink now–2013. NIS 120 in Israel (about US$ 34). Score 91. K
