Recanati Merlot, Israel

, 2017

Not Specified

Galilee 75cl

This came 'recommended' so was quite surprised how poor it was

Served blind I would have thought it was 'old school' South Africa Syrah, it's very smokey on the nose with leafy green pepper too. The palate is better (day 3 now it's got better....) and has some sweet blue fruit and a lick of oak in fact it's greatly improved from day one and two, seems less burnt and raisined !

Not sure that helps the casual punter though, as an 'acid test' I left it on the side in the kitchen (day two) and told Mrs H. to help herself to red wine, it didn't go well with her accusing me of feeding her barbecued wine (it really is that smokey)
