Montes Merlot Colchagua Valley Alpha 2009
The grapes for this Merlot wine are from Colchagua valley, some of them coming from the Marchigue estate. 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine goes through a oak ageing of six months in new and used American oak barrels. This is a young Merlot with some oak ageing. This is elegant, refined with a marked fruitiness almost irresistible to Merlot lovers and to those who sample it for the first time. It is strong, spicy black pepper, full of harmony and soft to the palate. 15% Cabernet Sauvignon is blended with this Merlot to better marry with the oak, and give structure and finesse that will also permit long term ageing.
RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
