WineFrog explains Yarden Mount Hernon

The red wine of Mount Hernon originates from the coldest, northernmost appellation in Israel, Golan Heights. The vineyards of this region are cultivated on a volcanic plateau at 1,300 to 3,900 feet (400 to 1,200 meters) above sea level.

The blend of Mount Hernon consists of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. The full-bodied style is due to a malolactic fermentation (secondary fermentation) and lacking sterile filtration. This gives the wine its depth and maintains its natural fruit and spice nuances coming from the blend of the above listed varietals.
