April 1, 2017 - 90/91
October 3, 2016 - Beautifully mature with a firm spine that supports all that beef-stock and cherry Musar fruit. A slight metallic tang on the finish which is surprisingly pleasant - a great Musar.
October 2, 2016 - Medium light body and bricked pretty much all through the wine. Benefitted from a bit of air, silky smooth, plenty of acidity , red fruits and exotic spices. Very good indeed.
March 15, 2016 - Stunning absolutely amazing. Earthy barnyard funk with beautiful tar and red berries, Silky and Rich. Structure and elegant. Nothing stands out here except perfect harmony. Super long finish with plumb, brine and leather. Breathtaking.
April 2, 2013 - Lightish brick red colour with orange rim. Bouquet quite delicate and ethereal with Rhonish aromas. Rhone flavours dominate the palate with red cherry fruit, perfect acidity and well balanced finish. A lovely wine - still has a few years left.

January 1, 2011 - what a great nose. i was so excited. however the wine tasted off. it was highly acidic and tart. nothing more. i was nervous when i pulled the cork because it looked like it was soaked through, though there was no seepage. oh well worth the shot.
July 1, 2008 - "Fire sale, everything must go" tasting with friends (At home): Typically pale red colour, bricking towards rim. Fabulously sexy nose, spicey and classically Musar, though others thought Zin (Ridge Geyserville was one suggestion). Lush sweet evolved palate. Reminds me how good Musar can be.
October 17, 2005 - Almost tawny, muddy with sediment.
Soft and tarry, smooth mid palate, good length.
March 7, 2002 - Wine Education Service - Château Musar: Deep tawny.
Toffee nose, a bit stalky.
A lack of balance and very tannic.
