Massaya Terrasses de Baalbek Beqaa Valley Lebanon 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine production in the Beqaa can be traced back to at least the Phoenicians the area was a significant source of wine for the Romans. It is, therefore, no coincidence that they built a major temple in the region to Bacchus, the god of wine. This wine comes from near Baalbek where the temple still stands, roofless, but otherwise almost intact. The influence of southern Rhône wines is evident in this blend of Grenache Noir, Mourvèdre and Syrah resulting in a plush wine with spicy notes from 18 months ageing in French oak. The perfect partner to a lamb tagine, this wine will drink well to at least 2020. We recommend decanting this wine, to enjoy its full complexity.
