Black Tulip 2006 is a powerful, classic blend, made of four remarkable varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon (60%) from Alma vineyard in the Upper Galilee, with the addition of Merlot (20%), Cabernet Franc (13%), and Petit Verdot (7%) from the Judean Hills.
The wine's style and strength allowed its prolonged aging period of 30 months, and after bottling, the bottles were further aged.
“Black Tulip is an artist's dream – creating, without any creative limitations, or economical and chronological boundaries. Just quality speaks... only the best, without compromise. Four years of hard work and a long wait, result in great satisfaction and pleasure for me...”
Tamir Arzy, Winemaker
