Gamla wines are made by the winemaker Peter Stern, who played a major role in the winemaking revolution in Israel. Gamla Cabernet Sauvignon was produced from Cabernet Sauvignon and small amounts of Merlot and Cabernet Franc, all grown in the Golan Heights and Upper Galilee. The cool climate, rocky volcanic soil, and high altitude are ideal conditions for growing these classic varieties. Aging in oak barrels, mostly French and a bit of American, adds to the complexity and cellaring potential of this deep red wine. To preserve the quality of the wine, this bottle should be stored on its side in a cool, dark place. Best served at 65-70 degrees F.
