Achával-Ferrer Red Bordeaux Blend Cabernet Merlot Malbec 2009
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
Smooth but powerful, this wine doesn't taste too hot, but you can tell that it is.
My buddy told me about this wine so I looked at the reviews, and bought a bottle to have with a steak dinner last night. This morning I went to reread all the external reviews, and I wonder how they got there. There is nothing special in this bottle. It is okay, but I don't think it is anything like the reviews. Maybe they are just living on their reputation because all these reviews are old. For the $133 a bottle that I spent, there is a lot more out there that is better than this. I won't be buying this wine again.
