External Reviews for Recanati Red Bordeaux Blend Special Reserve Kosher
Special Reserve White 2012 - 90 points, Wine Enthusiast/ Gentle aromas of citrus, thistle and marshmallow root yield to flavors of lemon curd and zest, marshmallow root, pineapple and a touch of laurel. A comfortable layer of tannins offers good mouthfeel, and the finish is zesty and refreshing, with a sophisticated savory note.
The Top 50 Kosher Wines in the World/ A deep, gently tannic blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot with Cabernet currants, cassis, and spicy herbal overtones, and a typical Merlot softness. Best 2008-2012.
Special Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon-Merlot 2006 - 89 points, Wine Enthusiast/ With 19 months spent in French oak, this is a big and powerful Cab based wine (with 18% Merlot) that has the drive and stuffing to hold nicely through 2015. Black fruit dominates with supporting notes of licorice, fruit cake, coffee and Asian spice. The velvety texture and firm structure make this an ideal choice for pairing with hearty meat entrées.
Special Reserve 2005 - 90 Points, Wine Advocate/ The 2005 Special Reserve is the pick of this litter from Recanati, which in these releases seems to have advanced in its winemaking. This is a blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot, aged in French oak. Like the "Reserves" reviewed in this issue, it is a wine with some power and intensity, but it is more elegant, more finely crafted, and it evolved beautifully. Is the best wine I have had from Recanati, silky, intense and graceful, despite the power on the finish.
Special Reserve Red 2011 - 88 points, Wine & Spirits/ A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot with a small percentage of Petite Sirah and Syrah, this is earthy and gamey, the cinnamon and clove notes pointing it towards lamb shawarma for dinner.
Special Reserve 2005 - Wine Spectator/ Firm, with a tight core of berry and plum flavors and a strong herbal component.
Special Reserve 2005 - Gold Medal, Vinalies Internationales/ The competition is the official competition of the French winemakers association and is one of largest and most important competitions in France and the world. Wines are judged by 100 professional judges from around the world in seven categories (dry red wine, dry rose wine, dry white wine, sweet wine, liqueur wine, sparkling wine and spirits). Gold and silver medals are given to a maximum 30% of the participants’ wines.
