2001 / Always love Musar. Well balanced. Refined classic style.

Whoa. Some (good) Brett, so much savory character, hints of Bordeaux, soy sauce, oyster mushroom, maple syrup. Weird. Unique. Lebanon.

Red currants, cherry, savory notes up front. Lingering blood and smoke in the depths Medium bodied with delicate juicy tannins that taper to a bone dryness

My first and probably last Lebanese wine :). PnP’d, but probably needs a decant of some sort. Dark purple color. Alcohol, blackberries, mint, and candied apples on the nose. Deep, concentrated wine that is hot and very tannic. Plums and dark fruit on the palate. Cross between Italy and Spain. Short finish. This wine needs to settle down big time! Maybe age will help?

Classic old wine with complexity and finesse. Black current, fig, cherry, with floral undertones.

Intense perfume of dried sour cherries and tobacco. Same on the palate, with a savory quality. Unique and intriguing. Maybe slightly more mature than I would have hoped for a 21 year wine of this quality, but this is my first Musar, so maybe it is exactly where it needs to be.

Notes of green bell pepper on the nose, very earthy but fresh, paper and leather - incredible with lobster bisque and steak
