Chateau Musar, Bekaa Valley Lebanon

I remember the curiosity of trying Lebanese wine at Le Souk in Manhattan on a late Sunday night. This became a tradition to enjoy mezze, great wine, and shisha with amazing company. Chateau Musar has been known to put out high quality blended wines in an area that has cultivated grape vines for over 6000 years. Cabernet Sauvignon, Carignan, and Cinsault are used in this wine. Medium body, dry. Nose of red cherry, baked clay, cedar wood. On the palate black cherry, leather, and clay. You get a wonderful sense of this wine’s unique terroir when you have it side-by-side with a Bordeaux blend.
