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.

Very fruity on the nose with mocha cocoa tones over a bit of oak spice. This is full of fruit that is balanced by well-integrated acidity It’s a big wine, balanced with rich dark berry fruits and a bit of raw oak. Finishes a bit short but the fruit is a bit monolithic with only the fine structural balance keeping this from veering off into fruit bomb territory. The tannins are a touch woody with a nice sandalwood tone on the finish. A little simple, not challenging, a lot of fruit, good texture.88pts http://assets.snooth.com/swf/100222-beckman-syrah.swf

A product of a great growing season, this deep, dark Syrah shows rich fruit and melted chocolate followed by a spicy mid-palate ripeness that makes this biodynamic Syrah a must-have with duck mole!

Winemaker's Notes:

87 points Connoisseurs' Guide: Nicely concentrated and exhibiting a well-composed mix of ripe berries, spice and complementary oak, this medium-full-bodied youngster counts vitality as a real plus... it is not an especially tannic wine, and it should relax if allowed a few years of quiet cellar aging. (Mar 2010)
