2000 Château Musar Red
Château Musar was established by Gaston Hochar in 1930 and is without doubt Lebanon's top wine estate. The red is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Carignan and Cinsault. Serge Hochar, who has been involved with the property since 1959, states that the Cabernet Sauvignon provides "the bones and the skeleton to the wine, the Carignan the flesh and muscle and the Cinsault the silky smooth finesse".
