Recanati Merlot 2019
|Region||Israel, Galilee, Upper Galilee|
The wine has the typical Merlot aroma of cherry, plum and Mediterranean spices accompanied by a gentle oak aroma. This is a bright red, medium-full bodied wine with a fresh berry aroma. Together, this produces a balanced wine perfectly integrated with the warm climate in the region.
This violet-red hued wine features aromas of strawberry, pomegranate and violet. It is sophisticated on the palate, with flavors of black cherry, blueberry pie, thyme and chocolate covered espresso bean. Lush tannins slowly drop away to reveal a slightly salty note on the finish.
Dark plum notes are matched to savory undertones of olive, herb and mineral in this brooding, open-knit red. Details of anise, mocha, leather and cedar meld on the finish. Kosher. Drink now through 2023. 8,333 cases made, 580 cases imported.
