Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2006 - 89 Points, Wine Advocate/ ... It does have good focus, a bright and powerful finish, intensity and good flavors, though. It is also a bit herbaceous, which nuance becomes more prominent with air, although less so than its sibling, the Merlot Reserve.
Kosher, for Everyone/ Grapey, but with some depth, too, which makes it interesting and complex. Soulful and classy.
Have a vintage New Year/ Rich, full-bodied red wine; one to enjoy now or age gracefully over the next decade. Pair with hearty meat and pasta entrees.
The Recanati Winery was founded in 2000 by a group of wine lovers led by Lenny Recanati. Their goal was to create a new winery for the production of quality Israeli wines at reasonable consumer prices.
Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2006 - 89 Points, Wine Enthusiast/ With 16 months in French oak, this is a big wine with big flavors. Fleshy black plums guts, black cherry, crushed African violet petals and a touch of tobacco appear in the bouquet, while cherry pit, pepper and cigar spice fill otu the palate. Medium weight and lush in the mouth with solid tannins and acidity, this is a good choice now with strong meat dishes or a candidate to hold onto for a couple more years.
New Releases: Israel/ Firm, with dark plum, dried cherry and spice flavors. The dense, tannic finish features cocoa powder, with meat and olive notes.
