The Bet-El winery Carignane grown at Beit El winery estate vineyard block in cliff view is a concentrated, deep and rich wine with a lush palate and deep fragrant nose of blackberries, blueberries, and spices. The excellent vintage conditions of the 2012 growing season – along with extreme limitation of the yields to approximately a half ton per dunam (two tons per acre) and focus on harvesting very ripe grapes – allowed them to produce a wine which is distinctly “Carignane” yet uniquely a product of the high elevation mountain vineyard, distinctly “Beit-El." The thin, stony soils on this slope force the vines to struggle and ripen late in growing season, which results in a wine that has excellent natural balance and is round and enjoyable upon release. This Carignane is a wonderful partner on the dining table for rich meat dishes or hearty cheese, yet it is also a delight to drink by itself as an aperitif or anytime the mood strikes. Lewis Pasco
