Chateau Musar, Jeune Red, 2017

$23.99
Musar Jeune Red is an unoaked blend of Cinsault, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon from youthful Bekaa Valley vines. Typically meant for consumption upon release – this deeply-colored, vividly fruity style definitely has the structure and complexity to be kept for several years. Inky-dark, silky-textured and aromatic, with blackcurrant, raspberry and cherry jam flavors, and a warm, spicy finish, it has been favorably compared to fine bottles of Roussillon red.

Chateau Musar

The sea-faring Phoenicians (ancient ancestors of the Lebanese) had a vibrant viticultural tradition, trading throughout the middle east, and ultimately introducing winemaking to neighboring Greece, Egypt and Italy. Today, the tradition continues with the esteemed Chateau Musar, the famous winery located about 15 miles North of Beirut in the region of Ghazir.

Established in 1930, the winery has endured decades of political and social unrest, even wartime, and with the sole exception of 1974, they have not missed a vintage. Vineyards over 6,000 years old lie in the Bekaa Valley, nestled between 2 mountain ranges. All are organically certified and, although Serge Hochar passed away last January, his family continues to work with the utmost respect for the land, hand harvesting, fermenting naturally and avoiding sulfur whenever possible.
