WINERY: Chateau Musar
VARIETAL: Cabernet Sauvignon & Blends
Country: Lebanon (Bekaa Valley)
A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault and Carignan. The Chateau Musar Red 2011 is a dark blood red colour with a rich, fragrant fruit nose; mulberries, black cherries, plums with a hint of mocha. The palate is very intense and concentrated, it’s full of volume and characterised by forest and black fruits with elegant spice. The tannins are soft and juicy and it has a lengthy finish. The Chateau Musar Red 2011 is a vibrantly powerful vintage and cellared well it will keep for decades. A great match for red meats, especially game, seasonal casseroles and mature cheeses.
