(2010 Vintage) This is Carmel’s flagship wine. It is a Bordeaux style blend made in an ‘old world’, elegant style. The grape varieties are Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Merlot, Malbec and a little Cabernet Franc, all from the Upper Galilee. The wine was aged for 15 months in small French oak barrels. Deep purple in color, Carmel Limited Edition has an aroma of black plum, violets, and tobacco leaves. It is full bodied, but shows extraordinary elegance and an excellent balance between fruit, tannins and acidity. The wine will continue to improve and develop in the next few years. The drawing on the label is of Carmel’s Rishon Le Zion Wine Cellars.
