5 Great Kosher Wines

2007 Covenant Winery Cabernet Sauvignon

This plush varietal wine has a rich ruby color and boasts a bouquet of cedar wood, smoke, plums and currants. Although it's pricey -- around $90 a bottle -- Robert Parker, the celebrated American wine critic, gave it a score of 90 to 92 on a scale of 100 and rated it "one of the finest kosher wines money can buy." For a special treat, try it with your favorite grilled fare [source: Covenant].
