This wine was produced from 85% Shiraz grapes from the Kfar Yuval vineyard (Upper Galille), and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon.

When the Shiraz grapes arrived at the winery they were chilled to 14 °c for a cold maceration, in which color and aroma are enhanced. After 3 days of maceration, yeasts which contributed strong fruit aromas and tannin were added. The grapes were fermented for 10 days, followed by just a light press. The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were fermented and aged separately in barrels.

After a period of six months in the barrels, during which the wine's flavors stabilized, the final blend was determined in order to receive complexity and harmony. After creating the final blend, the wine was returned to the barrels to age for an additional nine months. The wine was aged for 15 months in oak barrels, half of them French and half American.
