Interesting combination of Chardonnay and Lebanon’s native grape Meessassi from the Lamartine valley — 16 days ago
red fruit, black cherries, black fruits, oak, allspice
This is not blend! It is a single variety of Lebanese indigenous grape.
Sabbaghiyeh just killed every red grape for me.
Nothing compares to it. Impeccable body, impeccable finish, tannins are just perfect, the length is amazing, the nose is an absolute experience in itself.
This grape variety has anthocyanins not only in the skin but also in the pulp, giving unique tannins.
A Lebanese indigenous wine worthy of the best awards and recognitions.
Anyone that ever liked a Cabernet Sauvignon will fall in love with Sabbaghiyeh.

Dark ruby hue with high saturation. Aromas and flavors of balsamic, blackberry, black cherry, coffee, mocha, oak, sage, smoke, toast, tomato, and vanilla. Full body; heavy, firm tannins; and medium-high acidity. Robust, deep, and complex (especially after 13 years in the bottle). Rounds out as it opens up. An exemplary, bold California red blend made of 8 different varietals. — a year ago
