***I've had brilliant Musar reds back into the 1970s. They age into delicate, beautiful wines that will haunt your wine dreams. At 22 years of age, this Musar is firing on all cylinders, but the structure should hold it for another decade. Exotic, wild and distintive and singular, it smells like a spice market in Marrakesh.-Keith

The 2000 vintage is an  exceptional wine with serious ageing potential but with a very approachable and open style which makes it perfect for drinking now as well as cellaring. Perhaps more Bordeaux like in character than in previous vintages.

The 2000 Chateau Musar is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault and Carignan approximately 1/3rd of each varietal. The color is a brilliant garnet red, perhaps darker than usual at Chateau Musar. The nose is a complex intriguing mixture with a sweet, earthy succulence that's hard to resist, with a combination of red berry liqueur, olive tapenade and rich earth tones. It's all interwoven with stony, leathery, spice box and a funky-barnyard note that's tinged with minerality and chewy tannin that provides plenty of structure for further ageing.
