ref. JASP130 FEB18

Wine Variety: This is made from a pretty typical blend for The Lebanon i.e. Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Carignan and Cinsault. I wanted Daily Drinker members to see this wine in order to get some feeling for what is occurring in The Lebanon in terms of wine styles. 

Wine Region: Lebanon is one of the oldest vineyards in the world. Subjection by the Ottomans led to wine being made only by the Christians and the Armenian Orthodox community and it was Jesuits who, in the 19th century, imported vines and techniques used by the French in Algeria. The Bekaa Valley is the epicentre of wine production in The Lebanon. It sits at c. 1,000m up in the Lebanese Mountains. Ten Lebanese producers are responsible for virtually all wine made in the country. 

Wine Producer: Four generations of the Bou Sleiman family have made wine here, with Joseph now driving the Château Oumsiyat ship. Joseph has built a new winery in the village of Mtein. All fruit is hand picked.

wine tasting notesTasting Notes:

A sensible-looking colour in the glass: nothing too extracted. The nose is red and black, with a hint of something a little earthy-rooty and nutty. In the mouth this has good vigour and there?s a touch of some maturity about it in a light leatheriness. It?s a fresh wine, nicely structured with its fine, fresh tannic support. Nice length. Good wine for a claret-weight purpose?

#3wordtastingnote: dark fruit, nutty, snappy
