External Reviews for Recanati Cabernet Sauvignon Upper Galilee Reserve
Kosher, for Everyone/ Grapey, but with some depth, too, which makes it interesting and complex. Soulful and classy.
Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2009 - 90 points, Wine Enthusiast/ There’s a nice herbal streak to the cassis and bramble berry core of this wine. A full, robust structure and firm tannins frame the weighty dark-fruit flavors, while accents of tobacco and leather unfold on the long, evolving finish.
Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2005 - 89 Points, Wine Spectator/ This is firm and juicy, with good density and structure to the dark plum and dark cherry flavors. A lively mix of mint, chocolate and lavender fills the finish. Kosher.
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.
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.
New Releases: Israel/ Firm, with dark plum, dried cherry and spice flavors. The dense, tannic finish features cocoa powder, with meat and olive notes.
Located in Israel’s Hefer Valley, the Recanati Winery is a showcase winemaking facility, equipped with the most innovative technology available today. Owned by Lenny Recanati, a native of Israel with ancestral roots stretching back to Italy, the winery is the fruit of Lenny’s life-long dream to produce truly world-class wines. Chief winemaker is Gil Shatsberg, a graduate of the U.C. Davis wine program. Formerly a winemaker at Israel’s Amphorae and Carmel wineries, Gil brings to Recanati proven expertise in his field, allied to a devotion to artistry and craftsmanship in winemaking. Recanati wines are certified kosher . Production Area Grapes for this Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon are grown high in the slopes of Northern Galilee, where the rocky, porous soil and a cool sea breeze nurture this noble varietal. Grape Varieties 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot. Vinification Grapes are harvested by hand from late September through mid-October. Immediately following the crush, the must is chilled to 60°F en route to the fermentation vats. The crushed grapes then cold macerate for three days to cultivate their complex taste and singular fragrance. After three weeks of fermentation, the wine is transferred to small French oak barrels where it is left to age for 17 months. Color Vibrant violet. Bouquet Complex aromas of ripe black fruits suffused with nuances of truffle, cigar and toasted walnut. Taste Approachable and delicious now, this full-bodied red will age gracefully over the next decade. Serving Suggestions Savor with rich stews, red meats and hearty pasta dishes. Also superb with hard, aged cheeses. For maximum enjoyment, decant for one hour prior to drinking and serve at cool room temperature.
