Wine Recommendations

Massaya Terrasses Baalbeck 2012 - priced around $28.

  • Blend of Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre
  • Aromas of blackberries, pepper, cedar and bitter coco
  • It’s dry with medium acidity and tannins with flavors of similar to aromas with the addition of mushroom or earthy notes
  • The tannins provides a wonderful texture to the wine
  • We thought this wine was at its best paired with food like a hard or semi hard cheese

Château Belle-Vue La Renaissance 2007 - priced around $45.

  • This wine is a blend of 60% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Very deep inky colored wine with aromas of blackberries and black cherries, dusty earth, and eucalyptus notes
  • It’s dry with medium plus acidity and tannins with flavors of dark berries, coco and spice
  • Great textured wine with a lot of structure with a nice long finish
