Tasting Notes: Intense Ruby red, with purple notes. Lots of spicy black fruit on the nose, followed by a palate dominated by more of the same spice notes, and dark fruit. Great texture and a balanced finish make for a complete and well-produced wine.
Tasting Notes: Dark and bright ruby red, across the glass. The nose and palate share a common thread of cherry and bright berry fruit. The finish is balanced, with elements of spice, texture and balancing acidity. Excellent for the price!
Tasting Notes: The 2013 vintage of Chateau Ksara Cabernet was even riper than it normally is, which lends perfectly to this Bekka Valley wine. You would believe we were in the Napa Valley if we were doing a blind tasting of this borderline-perfect cabernet. When the bottle was revealed to be from Lebanon you would spend all night having to hear the amazing story of Chateau Ksara. The disbelief that this wine was that good, and not from a wine region you would expect, makes the experience all the better.
Tasting Notes: Done in the classic method champenoise style, with select grapes sourced within the district. Blended from Chardonnay, pinot blanc, and blaufrankish. Very balanced acidity, with hints of cherry blossoms on the nose. Fine bubbles linger on the palate. Very well crafted. Burgenland wine imported by Winebow
Tasting Notes: Clean with a citrus heavy, passion fruit and characteristic lemon and lime notes. This Marlborough wine is a refreshingly good example of value sauvignon blanc that delivers on its promised richness and drinkability.
Tasting Notes: This wine is from Martinsborough on the North Island of New Zealand where the wines are quite distinct from their Marlborough cousins. Pale straw in color with a slight green hue, this sauvignon blanc opens with aromas of lime and stone fruit. On the palate, you will discover flavors of lime, pear, melon and green apple. The finish is dry, crisp and clean with mineral flavors.
Tasting Notes: From the Bekka Valley, this blend of chardonnay, sauvignon and semillon is just round enough to attract big-white-wine drinkers, but fresh and clean enough to keep its refreshing nature. The short stint in oak (four months) rounds it out enough to have it hold up to many dishes. Chateau Ksara Blanc will give you an outlook on Lebanese wines you never expected!
