WINE REVIEW: Og Haganuz 2017 Shiraz, Single-Vineyard, Galilee, Israel ($17)
by Andrew Chalk
The Galilee region is emerging as one of the most interesting wine regions in the New World. The fact that Israeli irrigation engineers are some of the best in the world helps. It means that they can precisely ration out the scarce water supplies.
This wine carries its tannins well and presents a full-bodied, powerful wine that is enjoyable to quaff or can be paired with red meat. Good value.
Appearance: Opaque ruby;
Nose: Black cherry, perfume;
Palate: Full-bodied, grippy tannin, effusive ripe fruit producing a long finish;
