    August 5, 2018 - (Dinner at home, on a Sunday)
    An intense and provocative wine. Highly enjoyable, needs to be surrounded by laughter and flirtation. With rose, cedar tree, petrol and musk.

    On the nose, there is an strong petrol and musk smell, which on taste bursts into an intense rose surrounded by smouldering ash from cedar trees. The wine dances mercilessly on the tongue. A valiant and ageing gypsy living amongst the cedar trees, romancing at sunset.

    March 10, 2018 - A gathering of wine geeks (The Greater Boston Area): This was almost rosé-esque in the glass. The nose smells of a dust-covered, oil-stained cement floor with notes of kirsch, and tobacco. On the palate there's the typical notes of cherry-cough-drop, molasses, raspberry, with a lingering note of wild strawberry and mushrooms...this is just so silky-smooth. This is an excellent wine...but it's just a shadow of the last bottle we had from this vintage. This bottle was sourced and imported through the UK. Once again confirming my beliefs that the bottles that are imported by Broadbent show differently (and usually for the better in my mind).

    November 19, 2017 - Aromas of coffee, leather, mushrooms etc. Fruity mouth feeling, with a slight bitterness in the finish.

    September 24, 2016 - Ch. Musar Dinner with Marc Hochar (Crown Wine Cellars, 18 Deep Water Bay Drive, Shouson Hill, Hong Kong): Dusky, semi-transparent, plush faded red velvet colour. Nose is....gosh...old velvet drapes in a dusty room, cedar woods, damp fresh pine needles, very pure and fresh......absolutely gorgeous and you could sniff this forever. Palate is similarly alive, so fresh, great acidity then some very complex multi-layered variations on plums with dried cherries, dry Indian powdered spices, fresh ripe figs,.....etc. etc... too many elements to identify. Very resonant and reverberant on the finish. Super and still has a long life ahead of it.

    July 25, 2016 - From Art's cellar and we waited too long on this one. Bowl was amber to orange to brown on the rim. Prunes, pepper and barnyard on the nose. Thin and bitter in the mouth. As Dr. McCoy would say: "Jim, he's dead."
