Recanati Special Reserve Red Israel 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2013 Special Reserve red is a blend of 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Syrah, 21% Carignan, 19% Marselan and 5% Petite Sirah; aged for 18 months in new French barriques. It comes in at 14.3% alcohol. This might not be as attention-getting as in some years, but it shows beautifully, crisp and often seductive. It grew on me steadily while it was open. The initial softness is cut by the underlying freshness, and some earthiness in the background (the Syrah asserting itself?) cuts the initial, straightforward presentation. Restrained, just a bit understated and beautifully balanced, this drinks moderately well now, but it can still improve with cellaring. It should make a great food wine, easy to drink, possessed of a rather fresh feel and not a hair out of place. It may yet be entitled to an uptick." (91 pts) -RobertParker.com
