Alexander Valley Vineyards Zinfandel Redemption Dry Creek Valley 2010
In the glass there are aromas of blackberry, dark cherry, plum, chocolate, spice, black pepper and vanilla. There is mouth filling texture with spicy flavors of blueberry, black pepper and dark fruits. Kevin Hall says: 'this is a big wine with a long finish.' A big wine calls out for big flavors. Always works with grilled meats, Italian dishes or even slow braises. Try it with a hunk of aged pecorino or gouda. Alcohol 14.9%. Not yet reviewed; 2009 vintage rated 90 points by Wine & Spirits: A blend of small-berried fruit from a hillside vineyard with grapes from the valley floor, this is floral, intensely earthy and powerfully constricted. The blend creates full-bodied richness, bringing in some raisined character that adds complexity to the tighter fruit. A black wine with bountiful tannins to carry it in the cellar.
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.
