Wine tasting note: 1987 Musar Red

1987 Musar Red

2nd May 2000 GBP25 Lebanon Table Red

Very deep mahogany red to brown at rim. Volatile, oxidised nose with hints of creosote. Sweet strawberry and cassis flavours give way to dry tannins and slightly oxidised flavours of mushrooms and leather. Lively acidity. Layered but fading - I liked it but someone else described it as 'wine for masochists'
