CHATEAU MUSAR 1997 (LEBANON) Already over 10 years in the bottle! So, .....of age. With capacity !! The Musar nose is in tact....the definite streaks of MUSAR acid volatility are evident, and this is QUITE EXPECTED AND TYPICAL OF MUSAR. But not for long, and surely counteracted by the divinely exotic spices and leather notes. TRUE AND PERFECT HARMONY AND INTEGRATION. Deep flavour. Well rounded. Lebanese strength..... no coarseness , nor rustic overtones. Baked cherry instead. Rich and most interesting. A classic ! Sheer pleasure and delight ! CHEERS !

Took one (of two) Musar 1997 from the cellar tonight. What an experience, still robust, powerful, even spicy, but now almost gentle in its long, long after taste. Well rounded, balanced. Probably close to perfect timing to enjoy now (March 2010).

    A Lebanese wine with age, depth, and elegance.


    Winemaker's Notes:

    Cinsault from the garrigues of Kefraya in the Bekaa Valley: crisp, fragrant; attractive, some elegance. Carignan from Ana, a little further north: more flesh, nice fruit, very tannic. Cabernet Sauvignon was an incredibly deep color; green, stalky nose; austere, astringent. It would be another year before blending. Most recently, seemed fully developed, good flavor, lovely aftertaste.
