Wine Find: 2007 Yarden Pinot Noir

October 16, 2011|By Michael Dresser, The Baltimore Sun

This Israeli wine isn't full-bodied, but it punches above its weight class with great flavor intensity and a finish that just won't stop. It's a complex red wine that offers well-focused flavors of cherry and wild berries, with an earthy, gamy overtone that traces its heritage to Burgundy. The alcohol level of 14.5 percent isn't geared toward French-style palates, but fans of good California pinot noir will feel right at home. For those who need to know, it's kosher for Passover but not mevushal.

From: Galilee

Price: $25
