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

well balanced. mid intensity of plum, blueberry, touch of smokiness, resin. dry, mid acidity, dissolved tannin. probably late part in its drinking window.

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

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

Bold, little tart, pairs well with English cheddar

Old smoke, dusty cherry, anise, & plums on the nose. Juicy, yet dry. Lush, yet tangy. Notes of quince paste, cigar, plum, currant, & raspberry. Delicious. Medium-plus acidity & tannin. Delicious.

Incredible find! Rich cherry, coffee, and leather on the nose. Lush and fruity on the front palate and dry minerality (with some lovely herbaceousness) comes in on the back palate.

20 years old now. Firmly on its plateau of maturity. Certainly not dried out: still lots of cassis, kirsch, rose petal and tobacco aromas. Tannins have disappeared, dissolved in a thick, almost port-like wine. Good and long aftertaste. One of the better bottles of Musar I have tasted. Don’t be afraid to give Musar some time. 92/100.

Amazing, classic styled Cabernet centric as more used to be. Way more balanced, less oak, still dense and dark fruit.
