Massaya Gold Reserve 2003

Member Review by Purplebarrel:

The look is deep cherry, the nose is complex with thymne, cedars, gamey. The texture is made of nicely present small tannins. The acidity keeps the wines nicely crispy despite the power of the body. Great enjoyable wine with a meal

The story of Tanaïl Property goes back to the early 70's as the Ghosn family acquired an Estate planted with table vines. At First, they made homemadeArak from the grapes grown on the property. Sami and Ramzi Ghosn, the second generation owners, learned to love nature and its greatest produce - wine - during their childhood; in 1975, the civil war raged in Lebanon forcing the Ghosn’s to leave their Estate, nevertheless they always knew a day will come where they would return. Seventeen years later Sami Ghosn, by then an architect working in Los Angeles, returned to Lebanon and revisited the war-ravaged family estate. The land worked its magic and he decided to give up everything in order to devote himself to bringing the domain back to life. He revived the distillation of homemade arak and entrusted marketing to his brother Ramzi, who was at that time settled in France, managing his own restaurant company. The famous blue bottles of Arak turned into an instant success. Tanail was reborn from its ashes but Sami Ghosn had still greater ambitions. As far as he is concerned it is no coincidence that the Romans chose the Bekaa Valley as the site to build the temple of Bacchus in homage to their God of wine and grapes. Read less
