October 31, 2019 - Duft av eddik, tørket frukt og noe lær.
Rund og myk vin med god lengde. Tydelige tørrstoffer i finish.
Denne er godt forbi peak for mine preferanser. Tror ikke flasken er dårlig, minner mye om 2001 og 2002, også på halvflasker.
October 22, 2019 - Half bottle. Light brownish red. Strong barnyard, animal nose initially, opening into black fruit. Tart, sweet dark fruit, iron, smoked meat, somewhat savoury. Good balance. Long finish. 88-91.
October 20, 2019 - - Garnet color - Deposits. Let it stand for some hours. Boiled strawberries. Not much grip. Sweet.
August 23, 2019 - One bottle 94, the other 95. Unbelievable complexity, evolution and pleasure.
April 13, 2019 - Still alive - just - but lacks pleasure. Very light colour, warm-ish resin on the nose and a hint of suppleness on the palate, but nothing I'm too keen to drink if I'm being honest...
February 5, 2019 - Corked
January 19, 2019 - This was never a strong vintage for Musar...It's bricked at the core leading out to a tawny rim. The nose smells "sweet", like someone rolled old strawberries in turbinado sugar, mushrooms, molasses, and old/stale clove cigarettes. The palate is the only saving grace with this wine...while its not as upsetting as the nose, it still tastes old, almost like tasting the evolution of something that's decaying in real time. Tastes of bruised Strawberries, old blueberries, and fresh clove and spice. It's so interesting and unlike anything else I've encountered. I can't say that I'm not enjoying it, but I'd say it's more a cerebral interest than enjoyable flavors. If you have some of these...I'd open one now. I can't imagine where this will go with time, but I'm glad this is my last bottle as I don't expect it will bring pleasure or interest for too long.
September 28, 2018 - From 375 ml. Elegant nose of sandalwood, red currants, boysenberries and cherries, all slightly fermented. Some spice as well. Not much VA. Really nice. On the palate a bit thinner and not very long. Still good but was probably better a few years back. Larger formats migh show better.
September 25, 2018 - I really like Musar but not this vintage. Thin and both nose and taste is not pleasure for me.
June 11, 2018 - Amen!
