This wine was produced from 85% Cabernet Franc grown in the Mata vineyards near Jerusalem, and 15% Merlot. The wine aged in 80% French oak barrels and 20% American oak barrels. This wonderful Franc is full-bodied with a festive aroma of purple flowers, grass, green pepper, ripe red and black fruit and a bit of toasted wood. Its flavor is at once robust and round, invigorating and fruity. The tannins are gentle and piquant, with a long finish that is full of life. Pair with chicken or duck in an herb sauce.
