Chateau Ksara Reserve du Couvent Bekaa Valley Lebanon 2006

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. This dark ruby wine exhibits the fruit of Cabernet Sauvignon with the spice of Syrah and Cinsault. It is matured for 6 months in oak, giving a wine with good berried fruit, complemented by vanilla and a roundness on the palate.
