To open a bottle of Tzuba "Metzuda" is to enter the highest tier of quality in Israeli red wine. At the small Tzuba winery, Paul Dubb brings his lifelong study and practice of viticulture and vinification to the production of small-lot wines. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Malbec, "Metzuda" bursts with fruit but offers many layers of complexity for wine lovers who are prepared to discover them. As you soak in the aromas and flavors, you will gradually perceive rich blackberry and cassis, Chinese five-spice, and harmonious vanilla and cedar from careful oak aging in premium barrels. With robust roasted meats, hearty stews or mature fine cheeses, Tzuba "Metzuda" is a revelation.
