Red C Wines: Kosher for Passover

Red C Wines: Kosher for PassoverThese limited production wines from one of California’s most famous wine-growing regions honor traditions, both old and new. Enjoy Red C for Passover. We have all three in stock

2015 RED C Red has a highly vivacious character with ripe, round, cherry, berry, and spice flavors couched in firm acidity and soft, supple tannins. The layered flavors and textures are showing beautifully in the glass, and the finish is long, lush and fresh on the palate.

The lion’s share of the wine is sourced from Sonoma and Dry Creek Valley. Included in the blend is the press wine from Covenant Cabernet, Syrah, Malbec, Merlot, and just a touch of Grenache. Like all Covenant wines, RED C Red is fermented with native yeast. It is also bottled unfined and unfiltered.

2016 RED C Sauvignon Blanc comes from a region in Northern California where Sauvignon Blanc is considered the king of white wines. This single vineyard Sauvignon Blanc comes from a small parcel just east of the quaint wine country town of Healdsburg.

The wine is classic Dry Creek Valley—redolent of grapefruit, passion fruit, and herbs. It’s crisp, clean and refreshing on the palate and will pair beautifully with lighter-styled dishes ranging from seafood to poultry. Great with salads too! Or just drink it alone as an aperitif, chilled.

2017 RED C Rosé is a lovely pale pink showing hints of raspberry and strawberry in the nose. On the palate, it serves up a blend of citrus and spice flavors that give it just a hint of the exotic—perfect for pairing with just about any dish. RED C Rosé is marvelously refreshing on its own, too, served slightly chilled.

The 2017 rosé is a blend of Syrah, Pinot Noir, Zinfandel, and just a touch of Cabernet. They ran out almost immediately last vintage. But this year, they made slightly more: 440 cases.

About Covenant Wines
In 2002 Covenant Wines rose to the challenge of making kosher wines that parallel the quality of the best California non-kosher wines.

Essentially, all wine is kosher. But because kosher wine is also a beverage used to sanctify the Sabbath and other holidays, it can only be handled in the cellar by Sabbath-observant Jews. At Covenant, the cellar crew fits this requirement. Covenant wines are certified Kosher for Passover by the Orthodox Union and by Rabbi Yechiel Babad (Tartikover Rav).
