Natalie's Score: 90/100

The 2013 vintage of his robust red wine is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot, 9% Syrah and 7% Petit Verdot grapes. A lovely red wine with terrific balance. Aromas of mocha, blackberries and spice. Not hugely fruity, but just enough. An elegant wine that’s perfect for dinner parties. This wine spent 16 months in French oak which gives it a toasty finish.

Food pairings: steak, brisket.

Reviews and Ratings

Galil Mountain (2013) from Yiron in the Upper Galilee is designated a Kosher for Passover wine (KP). The wine is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot grapes and spent 16 months in French oak giving the blackberry, plummy wine and dark chocolate wine a nice toasty nut flavour finish. Drink now and for the next three years. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
