Passover celebrations are breaking out everywhere, but of course there’s no party without wine! Jewish ritual has always included wine. While Orthodox Jews generally limit any wine consumption to kosher wine, many less religious Jews drink kosher wines mostly on holidays. For a wine to qualify as kosher, the production must be supervised by a rabbi, and no animal products or other non-kosher substances can be used anywhere in the process. Some of my current favorite Kosher Wines.
Herzog 2014 Camouflage California Red Blend $20
Smooth and balanced with ripe berry fruit and good acid structure; smooth and charming, long and seamless. 90 points
Herzog 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Special Reserve $40
Smooth and juicy with bright plum and blackberry; fresh and balanced with tangy acidity and fresh fruit. Kosher. 90 points
Hunnicutt 2011 Napa Valley CUTT Fearless Red $42
Dark, dense and rich with blackberry and spice; deep and showing notes of chocolate and oak; intense and long. 90 Points
