Wine from Lebanon
read an article in a magazine a while ago about the wine growing regions of Lebanon so I went looking for Lebanese wine at LCBO stores. This cinsault/carignan blend was so good that I went back and got three more bottles. It is earthy, and the tannin soft and dusty, even though it is 2007, it tasted older, in a good way. Nice cherry flavor gives it freshness.
Feeling like making a festive meal for one in these late December days, I drank the last one of these bottles tonight with some roasted lamb (leg).
