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 something different.

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.
