ARFI "Gabriel" Judean Hills 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon (Israel), $12.99-$23.99, 86 points, poured an opaque ruby grading garnet red which encroached upon the clear wine ring with a moderately draped bowl.
The nose was a straight-forward toast and mulberry.
Medium-plus body with good acidity and thin sufficiently supportive tannins delivered tart flavors of mulberry, red raspberry, and a touch of cherry cola.
Finished long and spicy on whispers of pomegranate, coffee-bean, and mint.
ABV was a conservative 13.1%.
Paired well with our typically American burgers.
