2010 Musar "Jeune" Rosé Bekaa Valley
Wine & Spirits
A saignée of cinsault, this rosé is in a class of its own. It smells of spice, leather and soft, sweet cherries and tastes of figs, if figs were red, as well as orange peels and walnuts. It’s defiantly tannic, too, earthy and firm. And yet it feels lively, long lasting, inviting comparisons to a rosado from López de Heredía in Rioja. Delicious this fall with spice-rubbed quail or a vegetable couscous.
