Luscious and elegant, deep garnet, full-bodied and softly tannic, the aroma and palate display blackcurrant, berry and spice intermingled with Oriental spices and tobacco.
This single vineyard red wine was produced 100% from Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, grown in Kayoumi Vineyard, in the foothills of Mount Meron. The wine was aged for 15 months in small French oak barrels. It has a rich purple color, with lively aromas of cassis, blackcurrant and Mediterranean spices. The wine is full bodied with a long well balanced finish.
Binyamina Winery was established in 1952 by Joseph Zeltzer, who immigrated to Israel with a burning desire to produce wine as he did in the country of his birth, Hungary. Initially called Eliaz Winery—named after the owner's son who fell in battle during Israel's War of Independence, the winery started out in a region considered at that time to be Israel's wine region.
In 1925 a perfume factory was establish by Baron Benjamin de Rothschild, after whom the town of Binyamina is named. The factory site was chosen due to the jasmine plants that grew profusely in the area, and which were needed to produce perfume extracts.
