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.
My Rating 88: Very nice fruity body with hints of complexity. Nose is long and fresh, well balanced. At Costco now only $ 6.99. A Bargain!!
This wine may be light bodied, but is not light on taste. Aromatic cassis, tea leaf and hints of leather. The moderate finish adds distinct notes of black pepper. This was a very tasty and refreshing wine.
Sweet and fruity, full-flavored and has an easy hand with the sulfites. No nasty notes. Very drinkable, and worth the bargain price.

Bright ruby. Raspberry and cherry on the intensely fragrant nose with a smoky quality adding complexity. Fleshy round red berry and spice flavors show impressive clarity and energy especially for the price. Silky tannins add shape to the long spicy appealingly sweet finish. This is a great value.
Ein ausgewogener, fruchtiger, nachhaltiger und gehaltvoller Rotwein. Rubinrot mit leichten Violettreflexen. Mittelkräftiges, recht komplexes Bouquet. Es folgen Dörrfrüchte (Erdbeermarmelade, Rosine), blumige Attribute (Rose, Akazie) und etwas erdige Noten (Unterholz). Im Gaumen ist der Wein trocken. Die Struktur präsentiert sich recht weich, füllig und harmonisch. Zu den erwähnten Aromen kommt in der Rückaromatik noch etwas Würze (Pfeffer). Die ausladende Aromatik beherrscht den Gaumen. Mittellanger Abgang.
I've written the staff review on this wine for the past 5 vintages — I just love it that much! Soft smooth and amazingly lovable Evodia is 100% Garnacha from Calatayud. Loads of black spice and vibrant red fruit notes. The mouthfeel is velvety and the finish is incredible. This is the kind of wine that anyone can enjoy. Serve with pasta BBQ pork dishes vegetarian meals or paella.
Aromas of Asian spices, incense, violets, and assorted black fruits are surprisingly complex. Supple, concentrated, and lengthy on the palate, this excellent value will provide enjoyment over the next 4 years.
Big, black and alive in the glass, with earth and black fruit aromas. The mouth is lively and pure, with blackberry and red plum flavors covering both the dark and red fruit bases. Grabby and long on the finish; very likable value-priced Grenache.
