Barkan's exceptional Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon has been created to achieve the perfect balance of fruit aromas and barrel aging. The grapes are hand selected from vineyards located in the Northern Galilee and harvested at exactly the right moment to create a big and firm wine that maintains its fruit character without being overly alcoholic. The wine is then barrel aged for at least 20 months, mostly in French oak, to establish its balanced character. The result is an elegant rich and dark wine that will continue to improve in the bottle for several years.
Superbly flavored, with a full body and harsh tannins.
The wine is produced under strict controlled conditions from top-quality grapes of the winery, from vineyards in the Upper Galilee and the southern Golan Heights. For the final blend, the wines were chosen from new oak casks and one-year old casks. The Barkan team of winemakers, responsible for the production of the wine, is proud of its deep shade, the precise black fruit maturation stage, which is rich with spices, embodying harsh yet softly harmonized tannins.
