The Best Kosher Wines for 2011

Celebrate Passover with six delicious reds and whites by Joanne Camas

Covenant Chardonnay "Lavan" Napa Valley 2009

Jeff Morgan is rightly proud of his Lavan ("white," in Hebrew), an unfiltered, full-bodied white wine with a fine blend of mineral, stone fruit, toast, vanilla, and citrus flavors. "It's barrel-fermented for richness and complexity," he says, "and it's got bright acidity and can stand up to all sorts of rich dishes. But it also has enough elegance to pair well with light-textured seafood and soups."
