Château Musar, Bekaa Valley, Lebanon - 2005

${symbol}${ activeVariant.price | money }

The 2005 vintage is a deep blood red colour with a smoky, spicy, nose of black fruits, toasted bread, dark chocolate and cigar box – an impressive fragrance of fruits and spices. The palate is well structured; full of black and red fruits such as cherries, blackcurrants and prunes with a hint of dark chocolate and fresh tea leaves. The finish is long and fine with velvety tannins.

"The abundant rain and snow that fell in the winter of 2005 set Musar’s vines up for a long, sunny summer, the months between May and September memorable for their mildness. This is a wine that takes days to unfold, starting out deeply toasty and even tannic, getting brighter and more refined as it opens. Never does the flavor come across as fruity; instead, the flavor is so deeply savory it brings to mind brioche spread with foie gras. A blend of obaideh and merwah fermented in oak for seven months and aged in bottle for seven years before release, it feels as though it can go another seven without any problem."
