Congratulations Capcanes on the highest scores ever awarded to any kosher wine by a major wine publication!
Capcanes wines have been a favorite of GKC since we tried it last year at the Kosher Food and Wine show. In fact one of the best kosher wines we have tasted. Apparently, the highest regarded wine critics at the Wine Advocate and Spanish wine critics agreed. We must share the unbelievable results and our congratulations to Capcanes winery.
Excellent scores in the 90+ range have become commonplace for Capcanes wines, but elite scores of 94 (2007 Capcanes La Flor del Flor) and 95 (2009 Capcanes Peraj Ha’abib) are worth sharing.
Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, the most widely respected wine reviewer in the US recently sent Spanish wine critic Jay Miller to review the wines of Capcanes. Using words like “elegance, power and outstanding grip” Miller awarded the new Capcanes 2007 La Flor del Flor a score of 94, while calling the winery’s flagship “Peraj Ha’abib” “Powerful, impeccably balanced and lengthy” and awarding it 95 points.
Such scores carry extra importance as they are the highest scores ever awarded to any kosher wine by a major wine publication, let alone the prestigious Wine Advocate. Said winemaker Jurgen Wagner, “We are very proud of the scores Mr. Miller awarded and hope we can continue to produce wines held in such high regard. We are fortunate to have a very loyal following and are excited by the prospect of new consumers learning about and enjoying our wines”.
