Um vinho formidável. De estilo único, com uma personalidade marcante, um verdadeiro ícone! Tive a honra de conhecer esse grande vinho em 2001, o ano em que me tornei enófilo. Morro de saudades dos inesquecíveis 91, 93 e 95... Dos recentes, gostei demais do 2003, e tb do 2005, porém, esse 2004, já bebido antes, achei um pouco abaixo da média. É um vinho mais leve, com menos acidez, corpo e taninos que o habitual. Menos longevo! Já no ponto para liquidar! Uma safra mais modesta! Mas ainda, um ótimo vinho!
I hear so many in the trade deride this wine, yet they probably haven't actually tasted Musar since 1991 and jump on the band wagon of "VA this" and "VA that" Well, they should try this wine, its full of complexity and gives a lot of pleasure at a very reasonable price. Sure there is "brett" but this only manifests itself here a a slight whiff of farmyard. In all it contributes to a very elegant Musar, with pure expresion of fruit, an approachable structure and one that is very drinkable with a lovely juicy texture. Strawberries, black cherry, red currant, Farmyard, leather, spice. Lovely stuff.
Possibly faulty, except all 3 halves were very similar, with confected fruit and a suggestion of mustiness on the palate, which was not replicated on the nose. A glass left open overnight had a better aroma, so if we had any left I'd be burying them and then try an extended aeration.
