Merlot

Cabernet Sauvignon’s perfect match! A somewhat unappreciated superstar black grape, Merlot is excellent as a blending partner, as well as a stand-alone varietal. Offering luscious, often plum, smokey or chocolatey flavors, and a full body, Merlot can achieve great richness. This luxuriousness is what allows Merlot and Cabernet to blend so well. You can often find Merlot in a Bordeaux blend, but with the right hands, it can be shaped into a really exciting varietal.

Founded in 1983, Golan Heights Winery has played a significant role in developing and nurturing Israel’s current wine culture. Altering the way Israeli wines are perceived worldwide, the winery has been firmly placing Israel on the world wine stage since its inception. With vineyards planted in volcanic soils located in the Upper Galilee mountain range, Golan Heights Winery is revitalizing a rich winemaking history that extends more than 2,000 years focusing on sustainability. Uniting the best of tradition and technology, the winery’s vineyards have been the first to be certified sustainable internationally under the rigorous and renowned LODI RULES program.

Yarden is the Hebrew for Jordan River, which bisects the Golan Heights from the Galilee. The label features a symbol of ancient Israel: an oil lamp decorated with mosaic tile.
