Living up nicely to barrel-tasting promise. Developing in French barriques, dark ruby in color, mediumbodied, gently tannic, showing a lovely fruit-rich nose and equally tempting flavors. On the nose and palate red and black berries, black cherries and cassis, those reflecting a gentle hand with spicy wood. From mid-palate on hints of stony minerals and cedar wood. Pinot Noir true to its variety and happily reflecting its Galilean roots. A fine effort for the vintage. Approachable and enjoyable now but best 2012-2016. Score: 90 (Daniel Rogov, winesisrael.co.il, Feb. 26, 2011)
