Color black cherry, the nose tilts towards bell pepper and toasted oak, the texture is little bit behind in the middle of the palate while the tannins are strong on the finish, quite unbalanced and the tannins will soften up with time

Over the past decade, Ksara has seen the introduction of new grape varieties that have grown into vines the Bekaa valley has blissfully nurtured. Ksara has also seen developments in technique such as vines cultivation on wires and the attentive application of advanced science by French oenologists.

Full bodied and long keeping red wine elaborated from the most noble varieties, produced from selected grapes from the best and well oriented vineyards. It's a blend of Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Syrah. It is aged in French oak casks for 14 months. Ksara Estate lies in the heart of the Bekaa Valley near Baalbeck, where the ruins of the Temple of Bacchus from the Greco-Roman era can be found. It is called Ksara because it was the site of a ksar or fortress at the time of the Crusades. The property was acquired by the Jesuits in 1857 when it was already famed as a vineyard, and they maintained the tradition of winemaking on the estate. Climatic conditions in the Bekaa provide Ksara's vineyards with exceptional advantages. There is almost no rainfall during the growing season and diseases seldom strike the vines.

Winemaker's Notes:

Over the past decade, Ksara has seen the introduction of new grape varieties that have grown into vines that the Bekaa valley has blissfully nurtured. Ksara has also seen developments in techniques such as vine cultivation on wires and the attentive application of advanced science by French oenologists, who watch over the vinification, fermentation and decanting processes. Today, the wines of Ksara have a specific character, described as a “rare balance of dry fruitiness, of delicacy and coarseness, and of freshness and vigour.” They are the new image of a deliberately international vineyard and producer. Selected from the finest vineyards in the Bekaa, this densely coloured Cabernet Sauvignon wine shows blackcurrants and spice with firm tannins and good length.
