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.
These Kosher Wines Just Fine for Holiday/ An outstanding example of Bordeaux-type structure and complexity, this vintage has been followed by the 2001 Special Reserve, which is leaner and more purely cabernet sauvignon, with minty overtones.
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.

Vinalies Internationales 2005/ "Vinalies Internationales 2005" was held by the "Enologues de France" in Paris February 26 - March 1, 2005. Recanati competed with non-kosher wines from all over the world.
Over A Barrel/ 2007-2020 A blend of Cab Sauv and Merlot, it exhibits a deep ox-blood color and a nose of perfume, violets and vanilla. On the palate one also detects chocolate, coffee, cherries and toasted oak. Softer than expected and the taste lingers.
/ Another excellent Israeli alternative wine, particularly if you are in a buoyant mood, or if you simply wish to treat yourself to something really special this Rosh Hashana, is the Recanati, Special Reserve, 2001 - a full bodied, complex, serious, enticing and elegant wine (96 percent Cabernet, 4 percent Merlot) with notes of dark berry fruits, Mediterranean herbs, black pepper, dark olives, and hints of mocha coffee balanced against soft, seamlessly intergrated tannins and a little oak.
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.
