"This wine is a unique blend of Cabernet from five different "terroirs", which produce an elegant wine, with aromas of cherry, cassis and black fruit with a dash of vanilla, black pepper and toasted wood. The wine has a full round flavor with soft tannins and a long, pleasurable finish." —importer
"The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve also has a dollop of other grapes – 5% each of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. It was aged for 18 months in French oak, only 25% new. It comes in at 14.3% alcohol. Like many of Tulip's wines, it is a blend of regions and vineyards, with the Cabernet Franc and the Petit Verdot coming from the Mata village area of the Judean Hills, the rest from the Upper Galilee (Zivon, Kerem Ben Zimra and Kfar Yuval). If you're wondering why you should buy this Reserve compared to the 2013 "Just Cabernet" reviewed this issue, the answer is easy: this has mid-palate concentration, more power and more of an ageworthy structure. Showing the finesse that some others reviewed in this issue have, it also shows the same oak issues. The structure here, though, should give this time to absorb some oak and keep getting better. It is otherwise very refined and quite beautifully made, a wine with a certain elegance to go with its flavor and structure. If I had a quibble, it improved nicely with air, but it did eventually thin a bit too fast." —Mark Squires, The Wine Advocate
