Description

A deep red colour, with aromas of sweet cherry, plum and dried fruit together with a subtle spice element and hint of tobacco. The wine has a soft, rounded mouthfeel with lots of flavour and fruit concentration –caramel, mocha, ripe red fruits which are supported with soft, velvety tannins and a spicy finish. - Winemaker's Notes

The Winery

Chateau Musar was established in Lebanon in 1930 by Gaston Hochar, his two sons, Serge and Ronald joint the winery since 1950s. Serge studied oenology at the University of Bordeaux and has been the winemaker at Chateau Musar since 1959, successfully delivering nearly every vintage despite Lebanon's wartime difficulties. In 1984, Decanter Magazine recognized Serge for his winemaking skill and his courage, naming him the magazine's inaugural Man of the Year.

The third generation, Ralph and his cousin Gaston, who has been running the winery since the 1990s. Gaston's brother Marc also joint the family winery in 2010.
