    September 17, 2019 - Ch. Musar Dinner with Marc Hochar (The Bunker, Crown Wine Cellars, Shouson Hill, Hong Kong): Pre-decanted for around 10 hours by Marc Hochar. Semi-opaque purple/red colour....looks Californian. Nose is ripe, jammy, sweet fruit....quite nice even though not what I normally seek in a Musar. Palate is surprisingly approachable at 7 years old when my normal rule of thumb for Musar is to wait 15 years......really surprising, almost Californian, though a bit green and still too much alcoholic heat on the back end. But there is no doubting that this is classic Ch. Musar in the making. Very impressed despite my inbred preference for more decades of ageing when it comes to Ch Musar.

    September 4, 2019 - Just out of bottle - Inky crimson. Sweet black fruit, light touch of meat. Sweet, prunes, figs on the palate. Very sightly grippy. Too cloying for me at this stage. Here's to me hoping on its development over the next decade. 85-86.

    August 30, 2019 - Very primary at this point, but showing Musar characteristics. Touch of VA on the nose with tons of fruit, also on the palate with gritty tannins. Let's see what time does to this!
