KOSHER WINE (GENERALLY) SUCKS

This is truly the most outstanding Kosher wines, and one of the best wines overall, that I have had. A friend brought a bottle to my house, and I was stunned by the richness and complex taste..Non-Mevushal

The Capcanes Peraj Ha'abib Flor de Primavera 2003, $40, is the famous Spanish old-vines Grenache that's even praised by Robert Parker. It is grown in the northeastern Montsant appellation, neighboring the more prestigious Priorat winegrowing region, by Cellar Capcanes. It's one of Spain's largest wine cooperatives, which previous to 1995 sold mostly bulk wines to Miguel Torres. The Jewish community in Barcelona enlisted the cooperative (Catholics, by the way!) to make them a kosher wine, which took some doing by the co-op. It required massive upgrades to the production facility, hiring rabbis, and following all the Jewish dietary laws. But the end result was worth it: Peraj Ha'abib Flor de Primavera (it translates to spring blossom) is considered the best kosher wine in the world.

You can almost chew the aromas, which explode with spice, tar, blackberries, cedar and smoky oak. The tannins have grip but don't overwhelm the palate; the body is rich and complex. The concentrated flavors and texture are typical of old vines, which are low-yielding and packed with taste. Aging for one year in new French oak adds spice and toastiness. At about $40, it's even a good buy. (Non Mevushal)

Help introduce us to the Outer Boroughs

I happen to LOVE Cheburechnaya in Rego Park, Queens..incredibly reasonably priced Uzbek (sp?) food; great quality, and KOSHER too!
