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.

Terrific, rich texture, dark rich color, great fruit, but not sweet. A true gem.

The 2009 Garnacha de Fuego was sourced from 60- to 80-year-old vines at 3000 feet of elevation, insane for an $8 wine. Aside from the price, the other piece of good news is that there are 6500 cases for the USA market. Purple-colored with spicy black cherry aromas that jump from the glass, this is a forward, friendly, ripe effort with no hard edges. Drink this crowd-pleaser over the next 2-3 years. Neon purple in color, young and jumpy, but hey, that's what simple Garnacha from this part of Spain is all about. Expect fruity, jammy aromas and a blazing, full-fruited palate of rubber, black fruits and bacon. It's grapey but honest, and for the price it's as expected. M.S.
