Member Review by jamesvenema:

A very drinkable wine - moderately astringent, medium body, and oaked. All in all great value.

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.

The 2005 Barahonda Tinto is almost as good. Produced from 100% Monastrell and raised in stainless steel, this dark ruby-colored wine has an attractive nose of forest floor, mineral, and blueberry. It has a supple palate-feel, sweet fruit, and excellent balance but it is just a bit more compact on the mid-palate and shorter on the finish than the Carro. Nevertheless, it is a superb value.

Attention all California Merlot drinkers mdash; looking for something new? Irsquo;ve got the perfect wine for you: the 2005 Barahonda Monastrell form Spain! Produced from 100% Monastrell grapes, this luscious red is incredibly smooth, with a tantalizing, velvety mouthfeel and deep, generous body, reminiscent of some of the best Napa Merlots. Juicy blackberry, plum and black cherry in every sip. Open your mind and your heart to Spain, the not-so-secret value region that is taking the market by storm!
