    June 15, 2019 - Extraordinary aromas of violets, funk, red cherry, dust. The palate is elegant and light but with real intensity of flavours red and black cherry, spice, pepper, and some sweetness on the finish. Love these wines.

    May 11, 2019 - Blind Tasting...Wines That Don't Suck (House of Nanda - Chicago IL): Tasted double blind. Floral/ spiced start, clearly dense and complex, even if tough to decipher. Very engaging throughout, plus texturally exciting. In its peak drinking window.

    May 11, 2019 - "Wines that don't suck" (Chicago, IL): Served double blind. Head-scratcher. Some red fruit, a lot of spice, and really sweet. Low acidity on the palate, with some more high-toned elements on the palate. Seems to have a slight bit of alcoholic kick. No real baseline to make an educated guess; something from Tuscany was the best I could manage.

    May 1, 2019 - Decanted for an hour. Very Musar, with quite a bit of VA and barnyard, hardcore on the nose. The palate is beautiful, with red cherries and smooth tannins. This is very typical and very good!

    April 21, 2019 - Just an incredible wine. Spicy raspberry, sundried tomato, black fig, roasted red pepper. A wine you can small all night.

    (Chateau Musar (Bekaa Valley)) A darkly coloured wine here, with some maturing tones - no surprise for Musar - which are giving it a lovely, fine, claretty hue. The nose is just lovely, very typical, with elements of spiced fruit and leather, but at the same time light-footed and ethereal, not a hint of cooked or stewed fruit anywhere. Certainly high-toned on the nose, but that seems very appropriate. It has freshness on the palate, with a little stony element providing some evidence of this. Plenty of substance on the palate, velvety texture supported by a wealth of tannin and acidity, these elements coming through to the finish, In this respect, good length. Lovely fruit, with nuances of orange peel, cloves and pepper. Delicious wine, and a real success for the Hochars.
