Le Fleuron 2005

Lebanese red wine.

Really? Yep. It's pretty good. These are the kind of finds that I get excited about. Stuck on an end cap next to the Sake and the crappy Ohio wines. (aka Kool-Aid)

Web stuff: Heritage a prestige wine, has introduced “Le Fleuron” as a wine for the daily consumption. Prestige table wine? The perfect blend of Cinsault 40%, Mourvèdre 10%, Carignan 10%, Tempranillo 10%, Syrah 10%, Cabernet-Sauvignon 10%, kitchen sink 10%, and Grenache 10% gives this red wine a very distinguished and unique character.
Ruby red color, clear and very brilliant. Nose of cherries with alcohol, red and black fruits with notes of perfumed jams. Rich mouth of red fruits with notes of herbs and cherry finish.
A very beautiful wine to be enjoyed with a wide range of foods. It is a perfect wine for the regular wine consumer.

How does it taste? Its starts like a Joan and finishes like an Adam.
Huh? Joan and Adam pick the wines for the Rapid Fire Friday's. They both have excellent taste, but Joan's are on the sweater side and Adam's more tannic. I'm sure that Adam is tired of me saying that this wine is tight, it needs to lay down for a while. This has a hint of berry on the fore and a peppery, oak finish.

Cost: $10.99
Grade: B-
Cost Adjusted Grade: B-
