2009 Musar "Jeune" Rouge (Previously $17)

SKU #1065701 90 points Wine Enthusiast

 Gorgeous on the nose with a blast of fresh red fruit, violets and smoke, Musar’s Jeune is unabashed in its youth and verve compared to the more austere Gaston Hochar line. The palate boasts the same deeply concentrated fruit, but with a freshness and acidity that lingers to a smoky, leather-accented finish.  (9/ 2011)

K&L Notes

Musar Jeune is the new generation of Musar. Inspired by Serge Hochar's famously vibrant and youthful approach to life, the Jeune ('young' in French) wines are made for drinking today. Young, fresh, vigorous, and unfettered by oak, these are wines bursting with classic Musar character. This peppery and red-fruited blend of Syrah, Cinsault, and Cabernet Sauvignon proves Lebanon's mettle for fine red wine once and for all!

My exact tasting note from earlier this week reads "Smells just like a grape fruit roll up, and tastes like it too! Little simple but totally approachable and delicious". I revisited this little charmer a couple hours later and warmed up to it even more. Nice fresh acidity and soft yet well structured tannins. Again, straightforward, fruit forward wine that is very well made and would be an absolute pleasure to drink, on it's own or with some light fare. 60% Cinsault, 20 each Cab Sauv and Syrah. Enjoy! CM
