Now I know, I must do a better job documenting the exact wines, but I do remember that we ordered a 2000 Merlot & a 2001 Cabernet. The merlot was either oxidized, past its prime (yet still tannic?), Better than the merlot, but not great. At Jacques' recommendation we selected the 2001 Yatir blend - made from 60% Cab & 40% Merlot. This wine was made from fruit from the JudeanHills region & 2001 was (I believe) the first vintage released by Yatir.
