Bekaa Valley Rosé Blend 2017

Popped and poured; enjoyed over two days. Better on Day 2. The 2017 Rosé pours a unique copper gold color with medium viscosity; no signs of particles or gas. On the nose, the wine is developing with fascinating notes of black lemon, bruised pink apple, raspberry, marjoram, tarragon, and dry earth. On the palate, the wine is dry with perceptible but low tannin and high acid. Confirming the notes on the nose with the addition of a somewhat nutty characteristic reminiscent of spiced almonds. The finish is medium+ and savory. A wine for thinking. Similar to the R. Lopez de Heredia wines: if you like the white, you will like the rosé. Just lovely. Drink now with patience and a slight chill; best after 2027 through 2037. — 6 days ago

Musar Jeune Cinsault Syrah

What a wonderful wine. Great tension between the fruit and tannins. And delicious. Really wonderful. It does benefit from decanting, and a few more years would be fine. But this would be a great burger wine, or barbecue, or any red meat: this wine is really a great food wine—and a lot of juice for the money, as they say. — 3 months ago

Bekaa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2019

Verticals tasting 2019/2013/10/07/2004. At London Wine Fair. 2004 still had fruit and tannins so beautifully smooth. The 2019 was drinkable now but it would be a shame not to age it a few more years. Very surprised at the longevity. — a month ago

Chateau Bekaa Valley Red Blend 2012

Vintage 2012 | drinking well now, amazingly much fruit, cherries. I expected more tertiary tones. Seven years ago stubborness and tannic. — 3 months ago
