Since its founding in 1983, Golan Heights Winery, along with its Yarden label, has been at the forefront of the Israeli wine scene, proving to the international market that top-quality kosher wine is not only possible, but is down-right delicious. Their Mt. Hermon Bordeaux blend is a testament to that. Grown in the most northern and most revered appellation in Israel, the vineyards are planted on a volcanic plateau 1300-3900 feet above sea level.

This blend of Sangiovese, Gamay, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Tinta Cao, and Tempranillo is light to medium bodied, fresh, and very drinkable, in addition to being Kosher for Passover.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Straightforward and pleasant, it is modest in the mid-palate and tasty on the finish. With just enough structure to be slightly serious, it should drink well and make a nice food wine. However long it theoretically holds, it may not reward aging, so don't hesitate to dive in.

91 points Wine & Spirits: "This smells of sweet berries and tobacco, a heady mixture that’s immediately inviting. It tastes of them, too, with bitter chocolate and walnut notes that keep the wine savory and firm. It feels compact and powerful, in want of another year or two in the cellar to relax, or a swirl in a decanter before serving with a beef braise." (8/2016)
Wine Spectator: "This shows good concentration to the baked pear and ripe apple flavors, with ample creamy notes. The plush finish features accents of citrus and spice. Kosher. Drink now through 2018. (KM, Web-2016)"
