Rogov's Guide to Israeli Wines

The 2007 Recanati Merlot Reserve is from Menaravineyard and contains 15 percent cabernet sauvignon. The latter supplies a nice black berry aroma and flavor, and the aging in French oak contributes a supple texture and a mild black olive secondary taste. Good balance and a very pleasant finish make this wine ideal for a beef stew or with filet mignon.

The 2006 Reserve Merlot is quite a mouthful. Aged for 16 months in French oak, it is powerful and intense, as well as laced with sweet vanilla notes. As it aired out and the fruit had a chance to poke its head up from beneath the oaky layer, I liked this more and more... This comes from Israel's Ella Valley rather than the usual northern vineyards because, during hostilities with Lebanon, the winery could not harvest normally in the North.

The 2007 Merlot Reserve is on a par with the '06. There is 10% Cabernet Sauvignon added in, and it spent 16 months in French oak. It is a graceful and elegant wine... It has a certain ethereal air to it.. it is easy to drink, beautifully balanced and a pleasure to drink. It caresses the palate and seems quite charming.

The 2006 Merlot Reserve is revisited this issue as part of our retrospective, another wine at or around the ten-year level. This powerhouse--later Reserves seemed to show more approachability--is still tight and powerful, giving the wine a lean, somewhat austere feel to it. That said, it is also showing some complexity now (unlike its Cabernet Reserve sibling, also reviewed), making it seem very much like classic, right bank Bordeaux. Originally, I wasn't so sure about the balance here--the tannins still outpace the concentration of fruit. Still, this is a fine value in an age-worthy wine with some upscale intentions. It has plenty of life left and is easily proving it can age.

Jammy preserve notes of blueberry and ripe strawberry on the nose, with more plum and deep cherry notes fleshing out the medium-weight mouth. Delicate fine-grain tannins provide good structure, and linger throughout the milk chocoloate-infused finish.

Rich, lush and oaky with aromas and flavors of ripe plum, red berries and vanilla cream. Round and full in the mouth with solid but soft tannins and moderate acidity. This finish is long and lingering, with suggestions of vanilla ice cream topped with mixed berry compote. Drink now.

Offers a perfumed, floral aroma, with nicely sculpted flavors of dark currant, plum tart, pomegranate and mocha. Medium-grained tannins give this backbone. Finishes with dark chocolate, raspberry jam and minty overtones.

Offers a perfumed, floral aroma, with nicely sculpted flavors of dark currant, plum tart, pomegranate and mocha. Medium-grained tannins give this backbone. Finishes with dark chocolate, raspberry jam and minty overtones. Kosher. 3,000 cases made.

A bouquet of cherry, apple and cranberry primes the taste buds for flavors of blackberry, red plum, butterscotch, mint and coffee. There is a good balance of slightly grippy tannins and bold acidity, wrapping up in a bright, lasting cherry finish. One or two years of aging should mellow the tannins to perfection, so try after 2017.
