Russiz Superiore Merlot Collio 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This smells deeply of savory and salty things all mashed together with some kiwi, bitter melon and apple peels, topped with violet-like blue flowers. Big acid on entry leads the way to a rather well balanced mid-palate that is broad and just a bit hollow. The flavors are really well defined and clear, with a hint of dried herbs accenting the lemon, pineapple and melon fruit. This is precise and shows a chiseled profile, which is at times both cool and crisp before fading. An icy, understated finish leads to a final pop of sweet orchard fruit. Rather well built and elegant. 91pts

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

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.
