I must look after the neighbour’s cat again .
In exchange for the menial task of popping over twice to refill the food tray I was rewarded with this blockbuster from the Judean Hills , Israel.
We shared it together . It went all too quickly and left us craving for more .
Rich , complex , full bodied. Layer upon layer of fruits and perfume , cassis , liquorice and herbs. Lovely mouth feel , opulent with velvety tannins and a long long finish .
An absolute joy to drink now but with many fine years ahead.
The Yatir Forest vineyards are 900m above sea level in the Negev .
They have been awarded 93 points by Parker and received great accolade from Tom Stevenson.
