Chateau Musar Red Blend 2001
Hochar's cult wine made from Cabernet and Cinsault needs little introduction. Warning to novices: this wine carries considerable sediment and has a volatile nose. That is the nature of the beast. The nose is aromatic, fragrant, warm and mellow and it prepares the palate for fruits of cherries, strawberries and redcurrants. The palate is indeed full of these softer summer red berry fruits and combined with soft tannins, the wine is very well balanced.
rustic, earthy characteristics combined with sour red cherries, cedar notes, wonderful delicate complexity. Quoted from the winemaker, "dimension is endless"
Different, sweet on the nose, teak oil, sweet ripe banana?!? Mature tannins, nice rich taste. Aftertaste is not long lasting. Perfect with lamb.
