While it was widely planted in Lebanon in the mid-19th century, Cinsault fell out of favor to better known, imported international varieties. The grape has seen a resurgence there in recent years and is often used as a blending grape in many other Lebanese red wines. This bottle is an homage to this criminally underrated grape: unoaked, unadulterated, 100% Cinsault. Born from vines that are a minimum of 50 years old, the grapes are wild-yeast fermented in concrete tanks, making for a pure, beautiful expression of Cinsault. Cherry, blackberry, and bramble, balanced with lovely earthiness and nice concentration. Medium-bodied, food-friendly, and very easy to drink, I love it. Long live Lebanese wine, and long live Cinsault!
