Seven years in the making, Chateau Musar Red is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Carignan and Cinsault from vineyards near the Bekaa Valley villages of Aana and Kefraya on gravelly soils over limestone.Planted from the 1930s onwards, yields are low from these mature bush vines. Best consume between 2020 to 2034.
AppearanceFairly deep ruby
PalateStill quite youthful. Fall away a little on the end. Well judged but less distinctive and less obviously Lebanese than some vintages. Decent balance.
NoseA denser, more concentrated, linear nose than the 2010 served alongside. A certain dustiness of aroma. This seems more obviously Cabernet than most Musar reds.
