Yep, this was special. Took some extracting though - the cork disintegrated upon any attempt at unscrewing, so initially thought the wine was a goner. But, thankfully, after two hours strained into a decanter, the wine came to life. Initially very barnyard-y on the nose, but this fell away to reveal a tawny, delicate wine underneath. Superb.

Cork fell apart into little pieces trying to open it, and the initial whiff was a very unpleasant barnyard. I was skeptical, but the wine soon became a gem. Ticks off the BLIC with ease. Would give it higher than 9.4 but the Brett was a little bit of a distraction.

D5. Tastes like 87 Napa. Entry of aged blackberry and pepper. A little earthy middle. Some shoe leather and dates. Hint of raisin on the finish. Soft tannin and even a little acidic. This bottle is ready to consume! First Musar for me and hopefully won't be my last.
