92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Chateau Musar, the flagship estate red, is the typical, roughly equal blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Carignan and Cinsault, aged for 12 months in French oak. Adding a much needed layer of concentration to the Hochar also reviewed this issue, this also provides more focus and intensity, while still seeming to be a civilized Musar. Finishing with complexity, earthy nuances and a gamey hint, it is a relatively polished Musar that shows both finesse and flavor on the finish. After opening rather soft and reticent, the underlying power emerged strongly ...Read More »
92 points Wine & Spirits: "A blend of 50 percent Cinsault with Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon and Carignan, this comes off a vineyard planted 3,280 feet above sea level more than half a century ago. Cinsault’s sour cherry flavor and light, gauzy texture headline the wine, while darker notes of earth, smoke and berry fruit remain in the background.

It is best enjoyed with a savory meal, especially if the flavors veer towards the umami side of the spectrum. For adventurous palates!
Château Musar is Lebanon's most famous producer. The winery does not make rosé every vintage, because the winemaker (the late Serge Hochar) sought very specific characteristics from the grapes he uses to create a fine, delicate and elegant rosé. The 2012 is composed of the indigenous Lebanese grapes Obaideh (55-65%) and Merwah (30-40%), thought to be ancestors of Chardonnay and Semillon, and a small amout of Cinsault. From the winery: "Elegant salmon pink in colour, this fragrant rosé has aromas of peaches, white fruits and flowers, basil with a hint of ... Read More »
