Professional Wine Reviews for Gamla Cabernet Sauvignon

Rated 90 by Wine Enthusiast
Scents of vanilla bean and crushed violet add interest to the dark-fruit driven bouquet. The firmly structured mouth shows the same depth of flavor, with concentrated notes of boysenberry and cassis that are matched similarly strong earthy elements of black tea leaves and leathery spice.

Additional Information on Gamla Cabernet Sauvignon

Winery: Gamla

Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon

For most of us, when we look for red wines in a wine store or supermarket, the name Cabernet Sauvignon stands out as a mark of quality and reliability. The same can be said for the way those who cultivate the grapevines see them, too, as part of the reason Cabernet Sauvignon varietal grapes have had so much success all over the world is due to their hardiness against frost, reliability in regards to yield and quality, and great resistance to rot. As such, Cabernet Sauvignon is a winemaker's dream of a grape, consistently delivering excellence alongside a few pleasant surprises. Despite the fact that the grape on its own in a young wine can often be a bit overpowering, too astringent and challenging for many tastes, it is the perfect grape varietal for blending and aging in oak. Such a truth has been displayed for centuries now in some of the finest wineries on earth, for whom Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are the grape which adds the punch to their world-beating blended wines.

Region: Galilee

Galilee is not the first place many people think of when they consider New World wines, yet this small region of Israel, with its millennia of historical and cultural significance has developed a relatively strong and unique wine making identity over the past few centuries. As with neighboring Lebanon, Israeli wines have a distinctly Gallic edge to them, and the rich and fertile vineyards found around the base of Mount Tabor have proven to be a more than adequate home to a wide variety of Bordeaux grapes, from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Sémillon, Chardonnay and many others. The volcanic soils are packed full of important minerals, and the blazing sunshine helps the grapes reach full ripeness whilst expressing many of the fine features of their excellent terroir. The result is a fascinating range of wines, made according to kosher laws in one of the world's most interesting regions.

Country: Israel

For thousands of years now, Israel has been an important country when it comes to wine production. Today, wineries across Israel are having great success with the imported French varietals which have proven to be a fine match for the climate and soil types across the country, and grapes such as Cabernet Sauvigon, Merlot, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc make up for the vast majority of varietals grown on Israeli soil. Israel enjoys a Mediterranean climate in many parts of the country, and even more desert-type regions such as the Negev are proving to be ideal locations for viticulture, thanks to a combination of traditional and modern techniques, and advanced irrigation methods. Israeli wines are almost always made to kosher requirements, and as such have a high demand all over the world by Jewish communities, as well as being popular with many other people due to their quality and characteristics.
