    Christian Moueix Merlot 2003
    Sold Out $10.49
    I would buy this wine again if I understood how reds age, in particular how Merlots age. It tasted a little too tannic for a merlot, and I'm guessing a year or two (?) would bring smoothness to it. I decanted it 2+ hours before we had it, and it was still rough. The nose was clear after 3 hours; with berries and chocolate perceptible with patience. If I had not eaten something with this wine I don't think I would be so exuberant.
