Four carefully selected varietals, grown on a mosaic of terroirs, on the slopes of the Jezzine mountain ridge, situated at 1,300-meter altitude in Southern Lebanon. Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, come together in an uncommon blend, a subtle liquid work of art, with a wide spectrum of aromas and a supremely velvety palate. This unfiltered wine offers an outstanding balance and structure, making it perfect for ageing or immediate enjoyment. In the aft palate, it offers fruit-filled length.
