TASTING NOTES

Bright ruby. Heady, rich and gamey on the nose. Very hedonistic and accessible on the nose with real density and lifted slight gaminess. An attractive singed character on top of very ripe fruit. Great balance and freshness (but not excessive acidity) on the finish. Very neat on the end. Something rather wild and Romany about this. Already accessible even if I'm sure it will develop even more complex tertiary aromas.

Château Musar

The renowned Lebanese estate, Château Musar, produces some of the world’s most individual wines from vines grown in the stunning Bekaa Valley. Founded in 1930, and developed by the late Serge Hochar, the family estate continues to create outstanding wines from their base at the family’s castle to the north of Beirut. Famously harvesting throughout the civil war, the Hochars have always followed non-interventionist winemaking principles and have been certified organic for over 13 years. Using a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault and Carignan from mature vines, their wines are deserving of the high regard in which they are held.
