The 2016 Yarden Katzrin hints at its richness with the first whiff of its aroma. This special wine expresses attractive characters of ripe cherries, blackberries and plums, intermingling with pleasing notes of orange peel and chocolate, earth and herb, flowers and spice. Full-bodied, this complex wine displays concentrated flavors and a very long finish.
Although tempting to uncork upon release, the wine will continue improving in the bottle for a few years, and will remain in great drinking condition for some 15-20 years from vintage. Best enjoyed on festive occasions, Yarden Katzrin pairs brilliantly with rich dishes such as roast lamb studded with garlic and rosemary, pan-seared ribeye steak, or free-range veal osso buco.
