Chateau Ksara Réserve Du Couvent 2013 Bekaa Valley, Lebanon 

My Rating 85 Points.   

Price $15.



Dark Ruby in color with a nice wide purple rim.

Light nose of plums, cherries, blueberries, raspberries, earth, animals notes, violets, cloves, licorice, mint, spices and peppercorn.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with blackberries plums cherries, raspberries, earth, oak, licorice, green vegetables, spices, dark chocolates and peppercorn.

Nice finish with big, aggressive tannins and tart pomegranates.

A nice red blend from Lebanon. Still Young, but enjoyable with food. Needs one hour to open up, and then huge tannins show up, with nice acidity to back it up. However, it still unbalanced and will be better in 2 to 3 years.
Nice and entertaining, not very special, but above average, nonetheless .

A blend of 40% Syrah, 30% Cabernet Franc and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon. Grapes are grown in the bekaa valley, hand harvested and hand sorted.

I had the 2012 before, and liked this vintage better, maybe because it spent a longer time in the bottle.

13.5% alcohol by volume.
