2007 Yarden Pinot Noir

Sharing pictures from the phone doesn't seem to be working tonight, so no picture of this wine.  [Oops; I lied, just AT&T taking their time:]

I tried a 2007 Yarden pinot noir from the Galilee in Israel, in particular the Golan Heights.  The label says this was aged for 16 months in oak.

I hate to say it, but I didn't care for this wine.  There was a sharpness to it.  I aerated it, which didn't help, and even going back to it the next night, it hadn't improved.  It had the usual pinot notes.

I drank less than half, but I can use the rest for cooking.  Maybe I just got a bad bottle.
