Wine Enthusiast April 2011 88 Points Cabernet Sauvignon 2009 - 88 points, Wine Enthusiast ------------------------------------------ The heady and intense bouquet is loaded with black plum, berry and cassis fruit aromas along with melted dark chocolate. Medium weight with dusty tannins and flavors of cherry skin and sweet spice that linger through the finish. ------------------------------------------ Wine Enthusiast April 2010 85 Points Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 - 85 Points, Wine Enthusiast ------------------------------------------ Straight-forward and very drinkable with notes of blackbery and plum with cassis and soft spice accents. Hints of green pepper appear on the palate, along with flavors of black cherry skins. Lightweight with gentle tannins and a short, clean finish. ------------------------------------------ Wine Advocate February 2010 85 Points Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 - 85 Points, Wine Advocate ------------------------------------------ The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon was aged in French and American oak... with up front flavors from both fruit and oak and a hint of herbs as it airs out. ------------------------------------------ Wine Enthusiast April 2008 ------------------------------------------ Medium-bodied and soundly structured, this offers all of the flavor components that one would expect from 100% Cabernet: cassis, blackberry and plum skins. A solid finish with subtle tannins. ------------------------------------------

Wine maker notes
In mid- to late-September, the grapes are hand-harvested in whole clusters to maintain maximum flavor and aroma. Immediately after crush, the must is chilled and undergoes a cold maceration for two days prior to fermentation. The resulting wine is then transferred to French and American oak barrels where it ages for eight months before bottling and release.

Food pairing
A perfect companion for grilled meats, game, casseroles and robust vegetarian entrées.

Producer
The Recanati Winery was founded in 2000 by a group of wine lovers led by Lenny Recanati. Their goal was to create a new winery for the production of quality Israeli wines at reasonable consumer prices. The Winery established its home in the Hefer Valley and is furnished with state-of the-art wine-making equipment. The most important requirement in the production of quality wines is always the quality of the grapes. Dr. Pini Sarig, an international vine growing expert, was instrumental in assisting the winery in locating excellent vineyards as well as plots of land with vine-growing potential, where new vineyards were planted. Most of the vineyards from which the winery receives it grapes are in the Manara and Kerem Ben-Zimra regions in the Upper Galilee, a high region with an ideal climate for the cultivation of quality wine grapes. Additional growing areas are the Ella Valley and the Lower Galilee, which have a warmer climate that is conducive to producing the different grape varieties that provide additional nuances to our wines. Most of our red wines are made from the noble Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot varieties. However, the winery is involved in cultivating and assimilating additional varieties that have great potential, such as Cabernet Franc, Shiraz and Syrah, Barbera, Zinfandel and Petite Syrah. Our white wines are produced with Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, French colombard and Emerald Riesling Our winemaking process is leaded by our head winemaker, Gil Shatsberg, a graduate of the Viticulture and Enology Program at the Davis University of California. Shatsberg accumulated vast experience while working in California and Israel. He had become Recanati’s Head winemaker on January 2008, replacing Lewis Pasco and continuing his goal - making the best out of the fabulous Mediterranean terroir Recanati winery has in hands. Shatsberg is known to the Israeli wine lover’s public as the winemaker and founder of ”Amphorae”, one of Israel’s best boutique winery. His deeply ingrained sense of commitment to realizing the full inherent potential of the grapes is a significant contributing factor in the success of our wines. Our winemaking team includes a second winemaker, Ido Lewinsohn, a graduate of the Viticulture and Enology Program at the University of Milan. Prior to his arrival to our winery, Lewinsohn has worked in different wineries in Australia, France and Italy, among them the prestigious ”Sassicaia” in Tuscany. Recanati wines are marketed in leading wine stores and restaurants. New export markets have been developed, and Recanati exports its quality wines to ever growing markets in the United States, Canada, Australia, Japan and Western Europe. The winery looks back on its achievements in its initial years with great pride and sense of satisfaction, yet does not rest on its laurels and continues to cultivate new vineyards, invest in research in agricultural and enology and, most importantly, to produce wines with enormous love, while continually striving to enhance its products.
