Dalton Wines get High Marks

Just had a little lunch-time wine-tasting and purchase for the seder, and found two VERY good Kosher for Passover wines, both from Dalton Wineries (Israel).
The first was a 2006 Fumé blanc that was so light and delicate you could use it to complement matzah. Seriously! Good, good stuff, perfect to start out the seder with, easy on the palate and will go really well with the karpas/herb plate.

The second was their Red Canaan, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Sirah and a little Shiraz. As a blend, it was very mellow, but should hold up nicely to the molé-spiced butternut squash soup I'm serving as a main course.

I tried a couple of others with bolder tastes, but I'll wait and buy them later in the week, or maybe even after Pesach is over. One in particular would be really good with pizza... mmm...
