The Wine

Swarovski 2010 belongs to Benhaim Winery’s Grand Reserve (GR) series. This is a dry red wine produced from 90%  Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petite Sirah grapes sourced from the winery’s vineyards at Mount Meron in the Upper Galilee.

The wine is rich in tastes and fragrances, with a generous fruity palate and a full-bodied finish with spicy, cedar and smoky tones and a long developed aftertaste of raisins and nuts. Its color is glistening purple and its tannins are subtle yet pronounced.

This is an impressive wine with the potential of aging well over a period of many years.
