Day 95 Drink: Yarden 2004 Merlot
Yarden Wines was launched in 1984 in Galilee, in the northern part of Israel. The company makes wines under the Yarden Wines, Golan Heights and Galil Mountain Winery labels.
Yarden 2004 Merlot is made from grapes from five vineyards in the central and nothern Golan Heights. It was aged for 14 months in small French oak barrels. The wine is a dark purple color with a fresh fruit aroma. There is a nice blackberry quality to the flavor with some wood in the finish.
