  • Editors' Choice
  • Kosher
  1. $35
Dense and dark, this heady red is a blend of 67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 13% Syrah. Powerful aromas and flavors of wild blackberry, cassis, cigar-box spice and licorice root abound on the nose and in the mouth, and carry on through the long finish.

Yatir 2009 Forest Red (Judean Hills)

  • Cellar Selection
  • Kosher
  1. $85
Forest, Yatir’s top-of-the-line offering, is always a dense and powerful wine that can age. Right now, the wine smells young and a bit closed, hiding some of its beauty and nuance behind the upfront black plum, cassis and cherry fruit aromas. Hints of fruitcake spice, bramble, cigar box and leather occasionally flicker in the background, revealing what time has in…  — L.B.  (4/1/2013)

A clean nose of slate and cherimoya opens into flavors of passion fruit, caramelized pineapple, nutmeg and jasmine. This wine is sunshine-bright yet smooth as velvet, with a finish that offers lingering notes of citrus and spice.  — M.D.  (4/1/2014)

This Bordeaux-style blend is made from 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Petit Verdot, 5% Merlot, 5% Malbec and 2% Cabernet Franc, and promises great longevity despite its already somewhat advanced age. It’s dense and thick, with concentrated notes of cassis, blackberry, tanned leather, licorice root and peppery spice. The medium tannins are fine, but with good grip on…  — L.B.  (4/1/2013)

Recanati 2011 Reserve Wild Carignan (Judean Hills)

  • Editors' Choice
  • Kosher
  1. $56
With fruity acidity on entry that mellows to tannic bliss, this Carignan offers flavors of cherry, cranberry, pomegranate, thyme and fennel bulb. Good mouthfeel and a smooth finish are nicely supported by a strong but silky web of tannins.  — M.D.  (4/1/2014)

  • Cellar Selection
  • Kosher
  1. $35
This is a dark, dense blend of 52% Syrah, 30% Merlot and 18% Cabernet Sauvignon. Aromas of cassis, blackberry and plum lead on the bouquet, with background accents of tree bark and forest floor. The firm structure and gripping tannins are softened by ripe black-fruit flavors that carry through to the lingering finish. Balanced but young, this should develop greater…  — L.B.  (9/1/2013)

Golan Heights Winery 2010 Gilgal Syrah (Galilee)

  • Best Buy
  • Kosher
  1. $15
This is a thoroughly enjoyable wine, from the first whiff of cranberry and pine needle through the smooth finish that offers the faintest hint of butterscotch. A network of barely-there tannins supports agreeable flavors of cranberry, slightly tart cherry, butterscotch and sage.  — M.D.  (4/1/2014)

This is a dense and heady blend, made from 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 17% Petite Sirah. Black-currant leaf, black plum and boysenberry notes lead the nose and mouth, with a light dusting of cocoa, baking spice and sweet oak adding depth to the palate. Medium weight, with a texture like crushed velvet and a bold, flavorful finish. Drink now–2018.  — L.B.  (9/1/2013)
