We should all be drinking more Lebanese wine. Their economy could use the help in general, and the wine industry specifically. This is an interesting wine, made from old vines (70+) and a mix of Syrah, Tempranillo, and Cinsault. The Tempranillo and Cinsault are direct-pressed and see no skin contact, while the Syrah macerated for a couple of days. It’s got a wonderful smoked orange peel and clove character mixed with cherry and dried green herbs. Excellent acidity and length. Domaine des Tourelles has been making wine in the Bekaa valley since 1868, and is still owned by the Brun family who founded it.
