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)
From Yarden's Golan Heights property where the volcanic plateau of the region rises from 1,300' to 3,900' above sea level. A small percentage of the wine is aged in French oak barrels to add to the perfume and body, but the overall profile is fresh and bright.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Chardonnay Odem Organic (Yarden) is sourced from 1989 vines at 1,200 meters, which the winery calls "the highest and coolest in all of Israel." It was aged for seven months in French oak (70% new) and comes in with 14.5% alcohol and 3.0 grams per liter of residual sugar (dry, but not steely). This seems to handle its oak well at this point in its life, showing reasonable freshness, good balance and an easy drinking demeanor.
