Wine Advocate, 92 Points 

"The 1989 White is Obaideh (60%) and Merwah (40%), oak fermented. I have not always been a big admirer of Musar’s whites, but, like Musar’s reds, they are late released and considered quite ageworthy. Here is some proof. This 1989 is wonderful, a lovely vintage for this wine, beautifully constructed, solid but balanced, with fine concentration and strong, complex flavors. Fresh and youthful, with many years ahead of it, I suspect this would be a bigger star and a very famous wine if it happened to say “Rhone Valley” on the label instead of Lebanon. So it goes with emerging regions, or, as President Kennedy once famously said, “Life is unfair.” I’m conservative on drinking windows by nature, preferring to reevaluate in stages where doubt exists, but this vigorous and exceptional white shows no signs of giving up the ghost any time soon." 

Alcohol: 12.5%
