Wine Advocate February 2010 88 Points Reserve Cabernet Franc 2006 - 88 Points, Wine Advocate ------------------------------------------ ... is powerfully structured... The bell pepper notes are rather prominent... The bell pepper turns a little asparagus as time goes on. Despite the veggie notes, this is a very well constructed wine, serious and intense... Recanati, one of Israel's larger wineries, makes all Kosher wines. ------------------------------------------ Wine Enthusiast April 2008 ------------------------------------------ This is a nicely integrated wine with a good balance and structure. The forward red currant and plum flavors mingling with hints of tomato, tobacco and spice create just enough complexity. ------------------------------------------

Wine maker notes
After careful hand harvesting, the grapes are de-stemmed and macerated for about 2 weeks at approximately 60įF. Blended with 12% Merlot from an adjacent block, this wine truly expresses a specific terroir. After a fermentation period of nearly two weeks, the wine is transferred to French, Hungarian, and American oak barrels where it matures for 15 months. Of these barrels, the French and Hungarian are each 19% new oak while the remainder are 2-4 years old.

Food pairing
An outstanding accompaniment to grilled or roasted lamb and other hearty red meat dishes. Serve slightly cooler than room temperature.
