This is a 50/50 Syrah/Cabernet Sauvignon blend from the Bekaa valley in Lebanon. It is a reasonably priced wine and well worth the price of admission. Purple in color. The nose has black raspberries, spice and a bit of char. On the palate, this is tasty with black raspberry fruit. This is about easy drinking in the near term. No tannins. It probably needs to be drunk soon at this point (it is already six years old). It will go with a wide variety of foods. Obviously mid-eastern foods come to mind, but it will work well with Indian foods too.
