How much would you shell out for a 200-year-old bottle of wine? Probably not as much as the man who bought one in July, setting a new world record. What did he pay and is the wine worth it? We ask our resident master sommelier in tonight's Ask Alpana.
Alpana’s Recommendations for Israeli Wines:
- Golan Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 – Golan Heights $14: “A delicious Cab for “everyday” drinking.”
- Galil Mountain Yiron 2007 – Galil $22: “This is a splurge but well worth it. Made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Petit Verdot.”
- Flam Superiore Syrah-Cabernet Sauvignon – Judean Hills $40: “The Flam brothers are quite possibly making the best wine in Israel. Outstanding!”
