If anyone has ever heard anything about Lebanese wine, it is in gracious debt to Serge Hochar. At 20 years of age, he took over winemaking from his father and concentrated on perfecting a red blend similar to that of Bordeaux, where he studied oenology. In 1984, in the midst of the Lebanese Civil War, Serge was honored by being designated Decanter magazine's first "Man of the Year" for his commitment to his trade in the midst of political upheaval. Sadly, Serge passed in 2014. Thankfully, his sons are carrying on his legacy. To his most dedicated fans, every vintage pre his departure is irreplaceable. We could not be more grateful to be able to offer his 2000 red blend. Made of Cabernet Sauvignon, Carignan, and Cinsault, the wine has rested in barrel for 3 years before an additional 3 years in bottle. Possessing serious aging potential, this deep, rich red wine is also enjoyable in this very moment.
