Agur Kosher Winery, Israel
Wine expert Daniel Rogov suggested that we sample the wines of Agur, a small and growing boutique winery located on Moshav Agur in Israel’s Judean Hills. We recently tasted Agur’s 2008 Special Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon,. Our report – a wonderful wine--smooth, full bodied and a perfect accompaniment to our beef rib dinner.
Rogov’s much more eloquent and detailed description of this outstanding wine:
Dark royal purple toward garnet, full bodied blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, firm and concentrated, with still-gripping tannins and smoky wood, settling in nicely now to reveal an array of cassis, blackberry and raspberry… on a background of spices and earthy minerals. Ready to drink – score 88-90
Agur wines are available worldwide and just gaining distribution in the U.S.
