Château Musar

Hochar Père & Fils Bekaa Valley Red Blend 2017

Popped and poured; consumed over three days. The 2017 Musar “Hochar Pere et Fils” presents a deep garnet color with a near opaque core. Moderate staining of the tears. On the nose the wine is funky cherry accompanied by desiccated strawberry, leather, damp earth, espresso, baking chocolate, and some exotic spices. On the palate, the wine is dry with medium+ tannin and medium+ acid. Confirming the fruit characteristics and non-fruit characteristics whilst adding a licorice, prunes and a woody note reminiscent of a hollowed out log. I have to say…after some time (Day 3), it’s just the slightest bit mousy...showing some volatility too…but well within my acceptable range for it. Finishes long, lasting well over a minute. Savory. A tremendous wine with a very Old World (Ancient) sensibility. The best vintage of “Hochar” I have had to date? To my taste, yes. — a month ago

Bound Volume VI Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2020

A beautiful diamond in the rough that smells deeply of ancient oaks upon oncorking. The acidity matches the flavor well, like a mountain breeze that wakes the senses. — 2 months ago

Domaine Avetisyans

Kataro Red Blend 2019

This winery was destroyed during the war in 2020 when Azerbaijan attacked Artsakh. I am so happy that I got to taste this delicious wine from the ancient lands of Artsakh. Smooth, complex and earthy. — 23 days ago

Vinho de Talha Tinto

I have never tried a wine like this.

They use the traditional (or should I say ancient?) method of winemaking, where the wine is aged in old clay pots.

It’s smoky. Leathery. Dark fruit emerges.

One of a kind.
