The Bekaa Valley of Lebanon, to those people in the know,
is one of the biggest thorofares as well as a nexus, of some
of the most hardened Middle Eastern terrorists/freedom
fighters that the world has ever seen. However, despite the
discord and the strife, Lebanon, like much of the Middle
East, has some very beautiful places. That said, I decided
to pick up this wine from Lebanon to get a taste of
This blush wine is made from the Cinsault grape, which is
mainly used as a blending grape because of it's yield.
However, if the yield is pared down to produce less per
acre, then you can get a grape with certain potential,
though not the most noble.
While this rose is quite drinkable, it has neither
character nor charm. It is basically a C student, average
at best, but easily drank by many.
