Hi Rogov,

Might you have any details regarding the new Galil Mountain Barbera release? Is it indeed a "single vineyard" wine, from Yiron? (Previously)

Yoni, Hi....

I do not have any details at this time. I'll try to phone the winery on Sunday and see then if any information is forthcoming.

I have a bit of conflicting information; one shopkeeper told me that it was indeed a Galil Mountain release, but I just spoke with someone who attended the Jerusalem wine festival last night who said that it was released with the Gamla label... I guess we'll find out on Sunday.

Hi Yoni,

As I reported in April (Hebrew link), a varietal barbera is to be released in the so called "middle series", i.e. in the price range of the Pinot Noir and Shiraz-Cab (in the middle between the simple cab/merlot/shiraz and the Yirons & Avivim).

I'm very curious to taste it. By the way, what's the latest vintage of Recanati's barbera, and did anyone taste it...?

Lior.

WTN: Recanati Barbera Galil Mountain Barbera

Postby Daniel Rogov » Fri Jul 18, 2008 12:37 pm

Lior, Hi....

Following are my tasting notes for the 2005 and 2006 releases of Recanati's Barbera


Best
Rogov

Recanati, Barbera, 2006: Light garnet towards purple in color, medium-bodied, with soft tannins and generous acidity. Reflects its 8.5 months in barriques with light spicy notes and appealing crushed blackberry and cherry and chocolate notes, all leading to a light peppery finish. Drink now–2010. Score 88. K

Recanati, Barbera, 2005: Deep royal-purple in color, blended with 10% Zinfandel, showing medium-bodied, with soft tannins, light spicy oak and pleasing acidity. On the nose and palate cherry, blueberry, blackberry and cassis notes. Aromatic and lightly spicy and on the finish a hint of chocolate. Drink now. Score 88. K

I've attached what I received from the winery. The e-mail talks about the wine being from the Yiron Vineyard; priced at NIS 60, with total output of 19,000 bottles. The wine spent 12 months new French oak barrels. Aromas of Rasberry, sour cherry, wildberries and vanilla and a few other spices.

One quick comment and one quick request

The comment: I shall have a bottle on hand within the next few days for tasting. I wil post as soon as that has entered my blind tastings.

The request: If we do have to post things in Hebrew or other not commonly understood languages, may I suggest that we do it as links and not as an integral part of the text.

Thanks and Best
