Overview

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah, the Marquis des Beys red is a blend that many have long associated with Lebanon and the Bekaa Valley. With rich dark fruit, firm but ripe tannins, and the combined aromatics that evoke both the cedars of Lebanon as well as spicy aromas you can find in the kitchens and markets of Beirut, it should come as no surprise that Marquis des Beys Red is a welcomed accompaniment to a wide array of foods from lentils and grilled eggplant to lamb and Merguez tagine.
