Barkan Superiore Cabernet Sauvignon Kosher 2010

External Review by Skyview Wine and Liquors:

Brilliant ruby hue, with traces of purple tint. The nose is dominated by deep oak resins, those not at all sweet but rather elegantly spicy. As the minutes pass, a far greater complexity of intense black fruit is revealed, with hints of black cherries, blueberries and blackcurrants as well as a touch of cloves, cigar box and a refreshing streak of eucalyptus. As the wine opens, the oaky layers recede, allowing the abundant fruit to take center stage. After four hours from opening, an enchanting floral note appears, together with a hint of strawberry. The palate is redolent with intense, rich fruit, yet the main impression left is one of elegant, complex refinement. The wine is solidly structured yet amazingly soft-textured, with no rough edges. Its savory, appetizing tannins and acidity frame the rich, ripe fruit and avoids banal sweetness. The finish is long, with black fruits resonating with sweet spices and bittersweet chocolate.

A Vineyard was to Solomon the King, and as the love in the Song of Songs, our love started in a vineyard. Our love is a devotion to wine, to premium wines from the finest grapes we can grow, that our vineyard can give. To fulfill our love, we invest all our effort and soul from the beginning, from choosing the site for the vineyard, planning its rows, the choice of vines, the direction the light will fall. We plant with love, train the young vines and bring them to their first harvest: pruning, trellising, watching for signs of illness, watering and waiting. We harvest, we crush the fruit, ferment the wine, press it, age it, blend it and bring it to the bottle with all the care and devotion that we have, in order that the bottle you open will be the best we can give.
