A deep, shiny purplish red color. The nose is full of scents of black fruit, mainly cassis, which lead to aromas of tobacco, rosemary, nutmeg and a hint of old leather. The palate presents elegant and balanced fruitiness, refined acidity, a greenish shade of thyme and rosemary wrapped in ground black pepper. The smooth tannins, the complexity, the richness and the long and elegant finish eventually create a wine which is harmonious, precise and yet with an impressive presence.
An astonishing harmonized wine, with caressing tannin and a balanced, long finish.
The Eitan is a blend of Syrah and Merlot in equal amounts with a smaller percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon. Grapes were cultivated on terraced terra rossa vineyards at Kiryat Anavim in the southern Judaean Mountains. The wines aged in oak casks for a period of 12 months, before they are blended to produce the wine. The wine is a combination of red fruit such as red berries and cranberries with a hue of green thyme and oregano, and a hint of old leather.An elegant wine, that is drinkable now, but will only get better after maturation in comfortable conditions.With a panoramic view of its surroundings, the Eitan Mountain, with a height of 788 meters, is one of the most impressive on the mountains of Jerusalem.The mountain represents the unique climate that can be found in the area, characterized by nightly temperatures, which provide optimal conditions to grow the grape varieties.
