Recanati Red Bordeaux Blend Special Reserve Kosher 2007

External Review by Palm Bay International:

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.

/ 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.

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.

Recanati Kosher Wines are Delicious/ Represents the best Bordeaux varietal wines made... 96 percent cabernet sauvignon and four percent merlot.

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.

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 2004 - Wine Report 2009/ One of the "most exciting" wines of the year! About the Selection Process: Each contributor is asked to submit four to five wines for consideration for this section of the book, which meant approximately 150 wines. I then tasted the wines blind, grouped by variety or style, culling almost 40 per cent. Contributors also provided a tasting note, which is followed by my own comment.
