Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

The 2010 vintage has a rich nose of red fruits, cherries, cooked plums, black currants and blueberries with a hint of violets coming from the Syrah. These fruit characters follow through to the rich, warm palate which is also full of cinnamon, nutmeg and Christmas spices. This wine with its velvety soft tannins and long, warm finish is best enjoyed in its youth (in contrast to the Chateau Musar bottling, which is not released until its seventh year).

Perfect with roasted and grilled meats, spicy Mediterranean dishes, casseroles and mature hard cheeses. Enjoy straight from the bottle (no need to decant) and serve at room temperature.

Critical Acclaim

"Notes of ripe red berries and plums permeate the nose and palate of this bold, concentrated blend of Cinsault, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. It has a rich texture, and it offers a flurry of soft tannins and hints of spice and graham cracker that linger on the finish."

Haven't actually tried this, but I'm pretty sure Lebanon isn't in Austria. It's in Lebanon. So one star for bad geography.

Learn About Chateau Musar

Chateau Musar was established in Lebanon in 1930 by Gaston Hochar, and the winery is presently run by his two sons, Serge and Ronald. Serge studied oenology at the University of Bordeaux and has been the winemaker at Chateau Musar since 1959, successfully delivering nearly every vintage despite Lebanon's wartime difficulties. In 1984, Decanter Magazine recognized Serge for his winemaking skill and his courage, naming him the magazine's inaugural Man of the Year.
