Château Musar

Bekaa Valley Red Blend 1998

Kicking off birthday weekend with my first Musar experience. Sadly the cork did not hold up but after lots of straining I have some drinkable wine. The nose is extraordinary. Bordeaux profile with pencil shavings and tobacco leaf and a rich dark chocolate. Very expressive. On the palate this wine is mature and beautiful. Mostly aged Bordeaux character but there’s a mix of red cherry fruit and a touch of mint or menthol. Perfect drinking window as a lot of tertiary flavors are driving and the tannins are present but softened by age. — 13 days ago

If you don't mind me asking, what was the color like? The last '98 I had was quite pale...much more than I expected. Wondering if the bottle I had was flawed.

@Jay Kline of course - it was consistent with an aged bordeaux. a little faded and lighter but wouldn’t describe as pale

Figured. Thanks for the feedback. I need to revisit 1998

Terra Petra Rapsani Xinomavro Blend 2016

a nice follow up to 2015. This wine is really complex with aromas of red fruits, violet and herbs. While drinking the wine I had the feeling that I knew this signature in another wine drunk before but I was not able to get my hands on it. While reading CT someone mentioned Musar and yes.....bullseye... musar it is !!!
Really a good wine. Good amount of tannins yet very drinkable ... a very good QPR

This is a wine that always delivers, just a no brainer. Lovely nose and a soft and smooth palate with some depth. The 14% alc is fine for me and gives the wine enough power to travel on with our vegetarian menu. — 14 days ago

Wow, this is exceptional. All the bright and deep red fruit and subtle bretty notes of a great Musar but with a juicy acidity that surprises one on the palate. — 3 years ago
