"The Cave Winery was established in 2000 by the owners of Binyamina Winery, who set their sights on establishing a high quality boutique winery with the aim of producing wine of uncompromised quality. To achieve this goal, the expertise of a professional enologist and winegrowers were enlisted and large sums were invested in state-of-the-art equipment. The Cave Wine is made from Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes grown on vines in the Upper Galilee that are over 15 years old and from Petit Verdot grapes grown in the south of Israel. Due to its age, the vineyard’s yields are naturally low-crop and never exceed 700 kg per dunam (0.1 hectares). Cave Old Vines is complex and highly aromatic, with concentrated and multi-layered aromas rich in black fruit and spices and scents of toasted oak with traces of coffee and chocolate. The flavor is complex and balanced with generous ripe tannins and a long and elegant finish." -Winery
