The Passover wines had two firm criteria: They had to be labeled as kosher for Passover, and delicious.

★★★Exceptional ★★Excellent ★Very Good

Ella Valley Vineyards “EverRed” 2007 Ella Valley Vineyards 'EverRed'

★★★

Judean Hills, Israel, $26

This blend of merlot and cabernet sauvignon could pass as a good cru Bordeaux. It tastes a bit fusty and reluctant at first, but give it an hour — I recommend decanting — and it reveals a lovely core of fruit such as black currant and plums, robed in wood to lend it structure and spice. A classy, delicious wine.

O’Dwyers Creek Sauvignon Blanc 2010 O’Dwyers Creek Sauvignon Blanc

★★

Marlborough, New Zealand, $16

An Irish kosher wine from New Zealand? Go figure. No matter; this is tasty sauvignon blanc, with a good deal of the aggressive grassiness that New Zealand has come to be known for with this grape, but with good tropical fruit flavors underneath to give it heft and interest.

Cantine Gabriele Montepulciano d’Abruzzo 2008 Cantine Gabriele Montepulciano d’Abruzzo

★½

Italy, $14

This is a delightful red from central Italy, slightly earthy, packing lots of dark-fruit flavors with good acidity to help make it food-friendly. This might be the ideal Seder wine: It will make your diners (and Elijah) happy without hijacking the conversation.
