This is Mediterranean / Middle Eastern winemaking history in a glass. The Persians gave us Syrah, or Shiraz (as much of the world knows it) named after the city in Iran from which it originates. Carignan goes back to Cariñena in Spain and may well have arrived there with the Moors. And Argaman is a native Israeli grape variety. Each grape variety is fermented separately and aged for over a year in oak barrels before blending to produce a powerful, structured wine.

60% Syrah / 25% Carignan / 15% Argaman
Adumim is a rich, spicy and complex fusion of Carignan, Syrah and Argaman. Each component is aged separately for 14 to 16 months in 50% new oak before being blended and spending another two months in oak in order for the varietals to harmonize. The wine dark ruby in color and has a bouquet of black cherry, lavender and juniper berry. It offers pleasure from first sip through the fruit filled, smoky finish, with velvety tannins and flavors of cassis, black plum, espresso, chocolate and a hint of green pepper.
