Cabernet Sauvignon Petit Verdot

Dry Red Wine

Yogev Cabernet Sauvignon Petit Verdot is made from 80% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from the Galilee and the Golan Heights, and 20% Petit Verdot from our vineyards on the Gilboa. These two varieties were combined for the first time ever in a 2006 vintage. The color and flavor intensity of the Petit Verdot enhances the wine and takes it to an original and surprising level.

Winemaking Process

The Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot grapes are harvested two weeks apart and each are delivered to the winery at night. After destemming, the grapes undergo cold soaking and then begin alcoholic fermentation, lasting approximately one week. After completing the extraction of flavors and color from contact with the grape skins, the grapes are gently pressed. Following a brief stabilization, some of the wine is aged in stainless steel tanks and the remainder is transferred to oak barrels for several months of aging to enhance the flavors and complexity. The final blend of Cabernet and Petit Verdot is selected just prior to bottling. The wine is then bottled and continues to age for an additional few months in order to achieve an optimal balance of flavors before its release to the market.

Tasting Notes

Yogev Cabernet Sauvignon Petit Verdot displays a fascinating and original fusion of two varieties of grapes, both with origins in Bordeaux, France. The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes contribute backbone as well as superb freshness, while the Petit Verdot grapes paint the wine a characteristic deep purple-black, flavored with luscious flavors of black fruits with a hint of sweet anise-like seasoning. With a surprising full body and intensity for such young a wine, the wine begins to unwind and relax after some time to air in the glass. The wine is ready to drink just after release, but with proper storage conditions, it will age well for three to four years after its vintage date. Deliberate avoidance of oak enables the flavor of the grapes to enjoy center stage.
