Tasting Notes

The Musar Jeune (formally known as Cuvée Rouge) is the second wine of Château Musar. This red has some spicy Syrah added to the regular mix of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cinsault. Great dark cherry fruit on the palate with palpable yet approachable tannins.

Staff Pick Notes

Wait a second, I can take a bottle of Château Musar home for under $25? Yes please! This Jeune Musar is without a doubt one of my favorite reds in the store. Somewhere between medium and full bodied, its a balanced wine that I find myself keep going back to. Its a crowd pleaser with personality, sophisticated yet nonchalant. Raspberries, black cherries and dark fruits abound, and there's a touch of smoke and pine alongside light, velvety tannins. From a region that's been making wine since 4500 BC, this legendary winery releases nothing but the best wines the Middle East has to offer, and this Lebanese red is a shining, vibrant, simply delicious example. Pair it up with some steak tartare or better yet, some kibbeh and lamb shawarma.

Carignan

Grown all over Europe and the Americas, Carignan (a.k.a. Carignane, Carignano, and Cariñena) is seldom seen as a 100% varietal wine. Many appellations of Languedoc-Roussillon must include a certain percentage of Carignan, but it is rarely the dominant grape in these blends. For years, this naturally high-yielding grape suffered from overproduction, but New World winemakers have lately taken up...

Syrah

We'd like to clear this up once and for all: the Shiraz grape is genetically identical to Syrah. Australian winemakers put "Shiraz" on the map (and, many would argue, vice versa), and the term is now used throughout much of the New World. Let it never be said, however, that Shiraz and Syrah are the same thing: the region in which the grape is grown determines much about the flavor of the wine it...

Cabernet Sauvignon

The result of an illicit affair a hundred-odd years ago between Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon today enjoys more worldwide popularity than both of its parents combined. It is the principal grape of Bordeaux, and as such has rightly earned its place among the greatest and most long-lived wines of the Old World; of course, it is also the most heralded grape of California,...
