Chateau Musar is one of the great wineries of the world.  Add to that the idea of making wine in Lebanon and its even more remarkable.  This wine is outstanding. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Carignan and Cinsault.  Deep ruby in color with some dark brown swirls.  On the nose, this has cherry and black cherry fruit with an earthy barnyard.  On the palate, this is slightly sweet.  Nice texture.  Still medium tannins.  Black cherry fruit over a damp earthiness.  Long finish.  I don't think it will get better from here but it should develop a bit more.  This easily has another decade at this level and closer to two.  It will work better with food and went will with a mid-eastern spread.  It should also go well with stews and roasted meats.
