Christian Moueix Merlot 1996

Member Review by VegasOenophile:

Perfect cork. Youthful color. Lovely aromas of crushed red cherries, gravel, espresso and plum skin. On the palate, it's much darker. Black cherry, black plum and a roasty, earthy quality. Some coffee notes and wet stone. Relaxed tannin but stillhas big acid. Got this from a cellar collection so I assume that helped this hang on like it has. Some violet notes on the finish. 87 pts.

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
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.
