Musar Jeune Red
Country: Lebanon, Bekaa Valley
Tasting Notes: Musar Jeune Red is an unoaked blend of Cinsault, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon from youthful Bekaa Valley vines. Meant for current consumption – within a few years of the harvest – this deeply-coloured, vividly fruity style, first produced in 2007, may yet prove to be a ‘keeper’. Inky-dark, silky-textured and aromatic, with blackcurrant, raspberry and cherry jam flavours and a warm, spicy finish, it has been likened to a fine Roussillon red.
Varietal: Blend of Cinsault, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah
Pairing: With grills, roasts, casseroles, delicatessen meats and mature cheeses.
