Wine: Cabernet Sauvignon, 1996
Type: Dry Red
This is a superb heavy red wine that is, to my dismay, almost
impossible to find anymore. If you are fortunate to find it
- buy as many as you can, at any price. You will not be disappointed.
Your senses will be awakened. This Israeli wine, Barkan Cabernet
Sauvignon '96, won a gold award for excellence at the world
wine competition in France. The wine has a lovely, smooth taste
that is unparalleled in most Israelis reds today. Before winning
the award, it sold for 75 NIS per bottle, today it will cost
at least twice that amount. For those unable to find the wine
in stores, do not despair. Many fine restaurateurs were smart
enough too buy up stock. This is a wine for special occasions.
Treat yourself to a good meal and a wonderful wine.
Price: Expensive NIS 75-200
