  2. Hi Dan, keep up the great work! While I do not necessarily always agree with your thoughts on the wines tasted, I thoroughly enjoy reading your blog and wine experiences and hope to finally meet you soon in person and enjoy some Grand Crus together! 🙂

  3. Hi Dan
    I see you’re talking about wine coolers
    I would be interested in buying one for about 30 Bottles
    Would you have any recommandations for me?
    Thank you and Shana Tova

  4. Hi Unc, Like your website! Does Israel have Pinot? Let me know if your email has changed. Shana Tova! YS

  5. Yes, we have Pinot Noir in Israel, but being a grape that does not like heat, and, according to The Oxford Companion to Wine, one which “demands much of the vine-grower and winemaker,” it is not one of our forte’s. I didn’t like the one we tasted and wrote up in an article five months ago.

  6. Greate pieces. Keep posting such kind of info on your site.

    Im really impressed by your site.
    Hey there, You’ve done a great job. I will definitely digg it and in my view suggest to my friends. I’m confident they will be benefited from this web site.

  7. Nice review of the Yiron 2009 cab/merlot/petit verdot blend. It’s a beautiful wine. Thanks for linking to those great panoramas at the winery’s website. Thumbs up for you, and thumbs up for the 2009 Yiron.
