Yatir, Judean Hills (Israel) “Yatir Forest” 2003

($60, Royal Wine Company): Yatir, rapidly becoming a producer to remember, makes three levels of wine.  The Yatir Forest, a blend of mostly (82%) Cabernet Sauvignon and the remainder Merlot, is their top of the line.  Big and bold, the ripe black fruit flavors marry with the moderate tannins to deliver a balanced wine that screams for beef. 89 Michael Apstein Sep 4, 2007
