Musar Jeune Red is an unoaked blend of Cinsault, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon from youthful Bekaa Valley vines. Meant for current consumption – within a few years of the harvest – this deeply-coloured, vividly fruity style, first produced in 2007, may yet prove to be a ‘keeper’. Inky-dark, silky-textured and aromatic, with blackcurrant, raspberry and cherry jam flavours and a warm, spicy finish, it has been likened to a fine Roussillon red.
100 % Tempranillo aged in American oak for 2 years. Ripe cherry-red colour with a ruby edge, good depth of colour. On the nose it is notable for its fragrance and complexity, with aromas of red and black fruit (blackcurrant and blackberry) together with notes of cedar and mild toasty hints.
full-bodied, with rich opulent black fruit on the palate and fragrant brambly aromas.
Graham's describe this port as the ‘everyday Port for the Vintage Port drinker.’ Six Grapes is bottled relatively young (between 3 and 4 years) in order to retain the freshness and vigour comparable to a young Vintage Port.
100% old vine Tempranillo from a perfectly ripe and not overly hot vintage this underwent malolactic fermentation and subsequent aging for 2 years in American oak. As with all wines from Alejandro, the wine is unfined and unfiltered. Deeply robed, densely fruity and richly and richly tannic with floral cedar spice and a powerful, rounded finish.
The rich aroma is typical of the Cabernet Sauvignon and Tempranillo grape varieties. Aromas of red and black berry fruit, green coffee beans, liquorice and the characteristic vanilla and leather notes from ageing. On the palate the wine is full and silky with dense, well-structured tannins.
