Region: Upper Galilee.
Varieties: 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot, 7% Syrah, 5% Petit Verdot.
Technical Data: The wine underwent 14-21 days of fermentation on skins at 30ºC (86ºF), full malolactic fermentation, and 16 months of aging in French oak barrels.
Harvest: The winter preceding the 2014 harvest began with a heavy snowstorm that provided the grapevines with most of the cold conditions they required. During the rest of the winter there was little precipitation. At the beginning of May, a rainstorm compensated for the lack of precipitation, enabling vine arousal in moist soil. For the remainder of the season, the weather was moderate, even cooler than average, without any extreme conditions. The fruit ripened uniformly, and the harvest was of a very high quality.
