Chateau Kefraya Les Breteches, 2004 Lebanon

chateau-kefraya.jpgChateau Kefraya There’s something so romantic about middle-Eastern , purely because it conjures up images of Persia, sultans and sabre fights with spilled blood and contested honour. Perhaps I’ve read too much One Thousand and One Nights though. But, like spilled blood on a Persian carpet, this wine as a thick rich and red exploding colour; and unlike spilled blood on a Persian carpet, the wine has more of a confection scent to it, with essences of cassis, rich sour and hints of earth and tobacco. It reminds me of the 2003 Salus Cab, which I had the other night, except at a quarter of the price.
