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.
Food Pairings for Almaviva Cuvï¿½e Rouge
A blend of 86% cabernet sauvignon and 14% merlot. Decanted for 20 hrs but in hindsight, this should be extended to at least 36 hrs. Intense ruby garnet with a lighter rim. Youthful earthy nose with notes of leather strapping and tobacco. Dry, full-bodied with silky texture. High acidity, zippy sensations of rich, ripe blackberry fruit and trails of sour plum skin. Very smooth finish. Excellent. Drink 2015 – 2025+. 97/100.

(a blend of 86% cabernet sauvignon and 14% merlot; pH 3.85; 69 IPT; 12.3% alcohol; 85% selection for the grand vin; 85% new oak): Bright deep ruby with the barest hint of garnet; still very youthful. Enticing complex nose of cassis smoky cedar violet underbrush and kirsch; very Pauillac if in a ripe style. Dense rich and suave in the mouth with lively acidity nicely framing the rich flavors of blackcurrant blackberry jam milk chocolate grilled bread and spicy underbrush. Finishes w

A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2000 Mouton-Rothschild 750ml
A behemoth, the gigantic 2000 Mouton-Rothschild (76% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Merlot) boasts a saturated purple color as well as aromas of ink, cassis, licorice, damp earth, and sweet oak. It reveals a cassis liqueur-like flavor profile with a hint of truffles. This majestic effort will undoubtedly close down, but enjoy an exceptionally long life. Anticipated maturity: 2012andndash;2050+.
Itandrsquo;s rare for Mouton to show the aristocracy of its vineyard at a young stage, but this 2000 makes it clear. The depth and bearing, the sophistication and grip, the sense of power withheld is all right there ion the first pour. Perhaps this seems leaner that the wine often does (my mental image of young Mouton is plump and extravagant, while Lafite plays the lean and hungry youth). But here that leanness is a stance, as thereandrsquo;s plenty of stuffing underneath, plenty of gentle, supple red fruit to flesh out the mineral structure. Complex scents of five spice and pencil lead add layers to that suppleness, making the wine feel tart and rich at once. A Mouton for the ages.
The 2000 Mouton Rothschild is at its best with about 24andndash;48 hours of decanting. A blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Merlot, the wine offers a saturated ruby/purple color in addition to reticent but promising aromas of toast, coffee, licorice, creme de cassis, and roasted nuts. Dense, chewy, and backward, with tremendous purity and density in addition to obvious toasty oak, it is full-bodied, powerful, tannic, and backward. Twenty-four to 48 hours of aeration only hints at its ultimate potential. This blockbuster will be exceptionally long-lived. It is not as expressive as the other first-growth Medocs, but give it time. As I predicted in my first report on the millennium vintage (April, 2001), Philippine de Rothschild could be expected to do something special with her presentation of 2000. She has exceeded everyoneandrsquo;s expectations with a work of art. Those who have seen the extraordinary packaging of the 2000 Mouton Rothschild must certainly realize this is a brilliant achievement. The bottle is extraordinary, and likely to have nearly as much value empty as full! Her genius is obvious, but itandrsquo;s whatandrsquo;s inside that counts! Anticipated maturity: 2015andndash;2050+.
Rich, with loads of tobacco, berry, currant and coffee. Full-bodied and round, with velvety tannins and a long, vanilla aftertaste. If this had a tiny bit more concentration in the center palate, it would have scored a few points higher. Still, itandrsquo;s an outstanding wine. A generous and opulent Mouton. Best after 2009.

Made from a blend of classic Bordeaux varieties, in which Cabernet Sauvignon predominates, Almaviva is the result of a felicitous encounter between two cultures. Chile offers its soil, its climate and its vineyards, while France contributes its winemaking savoir-faire and traditions. The result is an exceptionally elegant and complex wine. Its launch was a major milestone in the development of Chilean wines, both in Chile itself and in the international market.
