Bodega del Abad Mencía Bierzo Abad Dom Bueno 2008

Member Review by gabriellaopaz:

Concentrated ruby in color showing heavy oak in the beginning, eventually fading allowing the earthy black spices and rich cherry notes to come forth. Straight forward and basic on the palate with medium acidity, light body and firm tannins. If the acidity were toned down a bit, I might be more receptive to this wine. But as a result of its predominance, I found it difficult to appreciate the herbal and red fruit flavors. Good with pasta or pizza.

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.

Aromatic nose of dusty black fruit like black cherry, blackberry, minerals, and a little grapyness. The palate shows a surprising amount of complexity with again a good mix of fruit, oak spice, and minerals. Dry, medium bodied, mouth coating tannins, showing great length and spice on the finish. Ranked #2 in Mencia's in the NY Times in the middle of March 2009- a great value!!!
