Hochar Père & Fils Bekaa Valley Red Blend 2019

ESF
9.1

Traditional Bordeaux style, old school presentation: red currants, cigar box, herbs, red fruit, some cassis, Left Bank nose & palate. Full bodied, elegant, lovely integrated tannins. Supple delicious and a solid offering from a venerable producer from Lebanon — 7 days ago

@ESF, it’s been many years since I’ve had any of these Hochar wines, they used to be widely available and really inexpensive in NYC back in the 1980s. . . .

Bolgheri Sassicaia Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Franc 2012

Usually not a huge fan of Italian wines, but yeah, have been buying some Sassicaia over the years. As I put away some wines I stumble across this 2012 that should be ready to drink, so I bring it upstairs to decant it. Great nose and typical flavor profiles emerge. Nice acidity and a some background menthol flavors that remind me of some great Chateau Musar vintages. This is a vibrant wine with tannins still strong, but integrated; better on day 2.
Not one of my favorite wines, no surprise, but a solid well-made enjoyable Bordeaux blend

Bekaa Valley Obaideh Merwah 2012

I love this unusual and complex blend of Lebanese native grapes. Mix of citrus and oxidative flavors. This wine needs to be opened well in advance. I left it in a decanter in my fridge for a couple of hours and then left it out for 15 minutes. — 7 months ago

Bekaa Valley Rosé Blend 2017

Popped and poured; enjoyed over two days. Better on Day 2. The 2017 Rosé pours a unique copper gold color with medium viscosity; no signs of particles or gas. On the nose, the wine is developing with fascinating notes of black lemon, bruised pink apple, raspberry, marjoram, tarragon, and dry earth. On the palate, the wine is dry with perceptible but low tannin and high acid. Confirming the notes on the nose with the addition of a somewhat nutty characteristic reminiscent of spiced almonds. The finish is medium+ and savory. A wine for thinking. Similar to the R. Lopez de Heredia wines: if you like the white, you will like the rosé. Just lovely. Drink now with patience and a slight chill; best after 2027 through 2037. — a month ago

Musar Jeune Cinsault Syrah

What a wonderful wine. Great tension between the fruit and tannins. And delicious. Really wonderful. It does benefit from decanting, and a few more years would be fine. But this would be a great burger wine, or barbecue, or any red meat: this wine is really a great food wine—and a lot of juice for the money, as they say. — 4 months ago
