Dense robe, deep purple-red, a spicy nose with pepper and notes of ripe red fruits. In the mouth, it has power and length. The firm tannins confer to the wine cedar note; still young, this Cabernet of long conversation has just started to seduce.

Producer Note
Chateau Ksara is Lebanon's oldest winery. Its traditions can be traced back to 1857 when a group of Jesuit monks acquired the property. The Jesuits applied their knowledge of science and agriculture to plant French vines as well as developing two kilometers of Roman caves that proved ideal for the storage of wine. The Jesuits sold the winery to its current owners in 1973. Ksara is now the most modern winery in the region as well as the largest producer in the country. Their annual production is over 2.8 million bottles and they sell their wines in more than 40 countries worldwide. Chateau Ksara is certified ISO 9001 and ISO 2200.00 for its viticulture, production and sales guaranteeing quality and consistency year on year. Vineyard
Ksara's vineyards are located in the central and western Bekaa Valley at an average altitude of 1,000 metres above sea level. The Bekaa Valley enjoys dry summers and has its own natural water table, courtesy of the melting snow running off the Lebanon and Anti-Lebanon mountain ranges. Cool nights help the vineyards to withstand the heat and drought of the summer. The vines are either double Guyot or cordon trained and are grown in stony soils which are predominantly chalk. The vineyard is not irrigated and the standard yield is between 40 and 45 hl/ ha. The grapes can be considered to be grown organically because of the very limited used of sulphur-based pesticides. Winemaking
The grapes were manually harvested, destemmed and transferred to vat for a period of 20 to 30 days. Fermentation took place at 28°C with several remuages and daily tastings. The free-run wine and press wines were separated and then malolactic fermentation occurred. The wine was matured in French oak casks of which 50% were new, for a period of 14 months. After maturation the wine was fined and bottled. Tasting Note
Great Cabernet typicity of bellpeppers and blackcurrants, layered with ripe red fruits and a sprinkling of coffee. On the palate it has power, with firm tannins and a lovely balanced finish. Serving Suggestion
Delicious served at 18-20°C witha juciy pan-fried steak and rich game dishes.
