soft and approachable Merlot is fruit-forward, with distinct strawberry jam and berry aromas. Well-integrated tannins and a medium body are smoothly offset by balancing acidity. These central coast Merlot grapes are carefully selected to produce a wine with aromas of red cherries, strawberry jam, and spice, with a rich mouth feel and finish.
In 1998, Yoav Levy, after many years of amateur winemaking, expanded his activities into a boutique winery. Levy first produced the wine in a bomb shelter near his house, using emergency water containers. He then transferred to greenhouse flower refrigerators. After a year, satisfied in his progress, he purchased stainless steel fermentation tanks. He moved the winery to the cowshed area of his moshav. In 2000, the plot of land at the end of the Moshav was allocated for use by the winery, where it presently stands.
