More about this wine

Here's what Israeli food & wine critic Daniel Rogov says about it:

Margalit 2007 Special Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon:  Intense and concentrated, so firmly tannic at this stage that you might think it searing. No fear, however, for those tannins are in fine balance with wood and fruit, the wine shows an enviable structure and all that is required for this one to show its glory is time. Destined to always be muscular, those muscles with an elegant and not at all showy note, as the wine develops look for currant, black cherry and blackberry fruits, those with hints of black pepper, nutmeg and liquorice, all leading to a long, generous finish.

Ready now (2016) but will cellar well

Rogov 94 points.
