  • Found this in a wine shop in Hawaii and being 11 years old thought I might try a bottle to see how this vintage is travelling. Medium garnet in colour, this has the usual old world aromas upon opening, wet earth and leather. The palate was light-medium weight, more medium bodied than light. Soft, smooth sweet black fruit dominate the palate with spice and raisin playing a supporting role. Quite complex in design there is enough going on here to suggest it has a few more years to show its best. Although it is drinking well currently. Good acidity with a medium finish of soft, fine grained tannins. A good but not great Musar.

  • Cherry, old furniture, some requisite Brett & VA, very sweetly fruited. A very good Musar.

  • First time with having Musar. This bottle was opened in the AM, served late in the evening, FWIW. Aromatics of what I jotted down as wet clay. Never called a wine that before but this was what came to mind. Also sensed some sweet floral and some herb. Juicy cherry palate with riper styled fruit and high acid.

  • Reticent nose, surprisingly ripe for how light it is, but that lightness is deceptive, as is the reticence. Of course, deceptiveness is sort of a classic Musar hallmark. Gains great complexity on the nose with air, of warm berries and blood orange on top of the usual brett and wet wood. On the palate, sweetly ripe fruit, generous, with a very long finish. A sweet vintage of Musar (in the best sense) even though the growing season was not necessarily warmer than others. I think this shows great promise.

  • This is now all the things that all great wines want to be, minus the lack of tannic backbone...

    Superbly exotic aromas ranging from red fruits to sweaty saddles, a whiff of Brett and wound maintenance.

    Medium bodied with only small tannins, M++ acids and extra intensity on the palate. Long, lingering, restrained, perfectly integrated... Now having left adolescence behind.

    We only have one btl to go of this vintage and are aiming for 2020, give or take a few years.

    Wife: 95p (also tired of supple fruit and watery things.)

    At over-performing Bisi-Basi in Yokohama.
