The wine is shows impressive aromas of blueberries, ripe blackberries, cherries and plum fruitcake. The palate is initially soft and round with primary fruits of blackberry, plum, red cherries and pomegranate with some chocolaty spicy notes in the background. It opens up with mouth filling berry fruit and delicious notes of concentrated dark fruits and molasses. It really begins to impress in the mid palate where it holds its' intensity and structure effortlessly all the way to the end. The alcohol is well integrated with elegant but youthful tannins - it is a well-balanced wine with good underpinning acidity and a compelling structure.

A mix of Cabernet Sauvignon, of Carignan with a dominance of Cinsault and a hint of Grenache, the Hochar Pere et Fils is partially aged in oak vats from 6 to 9 months.

It is bottled in its 2nd year before being released to the market.

Chateau Musar recommends decanting prior to serving.
