  • 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.

  • Early days for this wine but it was on a restaurant list (always a good sign) and we thought we'd try it.
    Youthful colour. Superb Musar nose full of fruit and spice. Palate full of fruit (mainly sweet red and black cherry) becoming more like maraschino cherry in the glass. Typical Musar spice and complexity. Half a bottle re-corked for dinner tomorrow and it will be interesting to see how it is opening.
    Personally, I wouldn't normally touch a 'noughties' vintage of Musar for at least a few more years but it is interesting to sample it young.
    Next day, soft and quite easy but fewer Musar characteristics. Every vintage has its own personality but I wonder if this vintage is for the shorter term?

  • Initially very precise and minerally but gives way to more depth and a bit of brett. Crisp acidity but silky smooth at the same time. Almost refreshing. Reminded me (and convinced me) I need to buy the '07.

  • The 2004 is entering the drinking window in my opinion. A well-made classic Musar. Good with food after a 60 min decant, or on its own after an extra 30-40 min of breathing.
