This Barkan Superieur Cabernet Sauvignon represents the very best of the exceptional harvest of 2000. The grapes were carefully selected from Barkan's finest vineyards in the Upper Galilee region and fermented in very small lots. The wine was then aged for 20 months in special barrels, which were chosen to enhance the final taste of this extraordinary wine. Only 1200 cases were produced.
Save this for a beef Wellington, roast duck or goose, or grilled lamb shank.
The wine is solidly structured yet amazingly soft-textured, with no rough edges. Its savory, appetizing tannins and acidity frame the rich, ripe fruit and avoids banal sweetness. The finish is long, with black fruits resonating with sweet spices and bittersweet chocolate.ÊÊ
