I have not tried this yet, but it is available locally. I know that is pretty young to evaluate Musar, but has anyone had it yet? Mr. Hochar, if you are still participating, do you have any thoughts on that vintage -- the weather, the style, the aging curve, or otherwise?

Thanks!

I asked about this wine upstream (can't seem to find the post) because I have a bottle. M Hochar said it was passed its adolescence, and was ready to drink now or for the next 50 years.

Peter, you asked about 1994, not 2004...

Hi Chris,
Thank you. I hope to continue reading you as you can always get in touch with me. 2004 is almost a classical Chateau Musar but you should remember it is still 9 years of age and even if it is drinking well already, I think the wine will change a lot in the next 6 years as it has a lot to come and this will add to the wine another dimension which I am sure will make it more pleasurable. Time will be the best proof.
Your’s,
Serge

It's a little late now, but I tried the '04 recently. I found it to be a relatively clean, polished Musar, without sacrificing the typicity of the estate. I think it's a baby right now, well worth checking in on, but a wine that will greatly reward a few more years in the cellar. It shows so young now that it's difficult for me to place it qualitatively (an injustice to such a distinctive wine anyway, but I am foolish enough to try), but I think it's probably going to end up being a very good vintage for Musar, but not one of the greatest. I've got a few tucked away and am happy with that decision.
