Bonterra Vineyards Merlot Mendocino County California Organically Grown Grapes 2003

Member Review by tabednar:

I found a bottle of this Merlot in my local grocery store in a sale cart. I picked it up for $12. Medium bodied with a smooth mouth feel. Aromas I noted included earthy and fruity. This Merlot was very rich with tastes of coffee, chocolate, and red berries. Finish was very typical of Merlot wines, it stays with you.

Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

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.

Dichtes Purpur-Granat. Zeder und Zimt in der pflaumigen Nase, Wachholder und Amarenakirschen. Kompakter Gaumen mit satten Tanninen und fleischigem Extrakt, viel Stoff auch in der Mitte, süssliche Frucht, Schoko-Zwetschgendessert, viel Wärme ausstrahlend, viel Schmelz bis ins veloursartige Finale. Ganz grosse Klasse! Verblüffende Grange-Affinität.
