The grapes for the Cabernet Sauvignon Special Reserve come from the winery's vineyard in the Upper Galilee which are characterized by basalt and terra rossa soils. This fine wine, which has been aged in oak barrels for 18 months, is powerful and complex, and will continue to improve under proper aging conditions. Garnet in the glass, this wine has aromas of blackberry and green pepper. Flavors of cassis, black cherry, vanilla, coffee, butterscotch and green pepper remain bright in contrast to the wine's savory notes. It is soft on the palate with a quick, bright finish.
A deep violet ruby red color with a smooth texture, Barkan Shiraz Winemaker is a medium bodied dry red wine. Flavor notes of black cherry, anise, black fruit, black pepper, and spices. Pairs well with grilled meat, chicken, or full flavored pasta dishes.
