Intend to forget how tasty these wines are and can be. Balanced, complex. Impressive

I love this wine. So damn funky they should put a picture of Bootsy Collins on the label

My first time with this. As if Bordeaux and Rioja made sweet sweet love. This would be their love child.

Better the next day. The Bekka Valley is now filled with hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees. This bottle is a time capsule of a more peaceful time.

Dark and rich and sublime and so well balanced.

1995 Chateau Musar that after 20 years is in its prime. Rich fruit, long smooth finish. What a treat!

Very interesting wine. Colour - ruby. Aroma - oaky. Tastes like a Spanish Ribera. Rich wine, yet retaining a certain level of finesse. Would buy again.

Beautifully complex aroma with elegant aged notes, but surprisingly vibrant Flavors of bright jammy fruit. Unique and delicious

Even more powerful nose than 1999, gorgeous aromas of surprising bubble gum, dried fruit, dried flowers, hints of mint and estragon. Amazing on the palate — smooth, focused, concentrated, plenty of life left in this and it can go to sleep for another decade easily. Fruit, berries, flowers, smoke and cured meats. In love and couldn't get enough of it!
