Chateau Musar Red 2004
|Region||Lebanon, Bekaa Valley|
A deep burgundy colour with a nose of mature fruits, plums, cherries, figs, cinnamon and cloves. The aromas follow through to a palate full of rich black and red fruits - plums and damsons dominate with pomegranate, baked cherries and Christmas spices. An intensely concentrated powerful vintage with fine smooth tannins and a spicy, warming finish.
A succulent red, with red currant, dark cherry and dried raspberry flavors that are well-spiced. Sandalwood and cream accents linger on the rich and silky finish, revealing notes of hot stone. Drink now.
Enticing whiffs of spice, dried herb and ripe, briary berries emerge from this rich, structured wine. The fruit on the palate is lavish, almost pulpy, but it's framed by lush tannins and brisk acidity. The finish is herbal and bracing.
