This wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Tempranillo and native grape Caladoc. All grown bush vine fashion in the rocky soils of the Bekaa Valley and cultivated without the use of Herbicides and pesticides.
The result is a very dark and intense wine with delightful aromas of morello cherry and a hint of rosemary. On taste it is smooth with hints of black fruits, touch of mint and overtones of tobacco from the oak ageing.
Perfect with beef, lamb and spicy stews.
