Winemaker Notes: 

"Chateau Musar Red 2012 has a dark burgundy colour, a nose of matured stone fruits, plums and figs with liquorice and spicy notes. It has big developed ripe fruit on the nose and a bold taste profile of juicy, black fruits plus mocha and leather and a beautiful lingering finish." 

"An equal blend of Cinsault, Carignan and Cabernet Sauvignon, from a bakingly hot vintage, it has all the Musar hallmarks of rich, ripe, savoury fruit backed by an underlying sweetness and softness." – Jonny Ray, The Spectator

"The Hochar family has turned out an exceptional 2012 vintage of their flagship wine. Deep in colour, intensely smoky and spicy with black fruit, full body and a finish that lasts and lasts. Unmistakably Musar in style and personality, it is immediately appealing but will age gracefully over the next 10 to 15 years." – The Wine Society 

"Dense red, still very young and thick ‘legs’ on the glass showing richness to come, the nose still quite closed with autumnal black stone fruits which show exuberance and spice on the palate with almost a sweet warmth of texture from a small, late and naturally concentrated harvest, not ready yet and needing to lose its ‘puppy fat’ and move into its second decade to show its vineyard character to the full." – Steven Spurrier  

Alcohol: 13.5%
