Bonny Doon Vineyard Syrah Blend California Bouteille Call NV
Our Bouteille Call is a raspberry infused Syrah port. What is the wine like? For one thing, it is not a wine so much as a call to action, an entreaty, an appeal to reacquaint oneself with the pleasures of the sensual world. It also happens to be an unguent/boisson that must be slathered about or accompany the most tasty and tender chocolate-covered bits one can, well, tender. On a more qualitative plane, the wine is almost unnaturally rich and viscous. When the wine is poured, the aromas of raspberry, cassis and licorice fairly billow out of the glass in an almost cartoony, Barbara Eden-like fashion. Though the wine has considerable tannin, the tannin is almost completely buried under the richness and extract and yumminess. "Decadent" is an adjective that is grossly overused within the academy of wine writers, but one can easily imagine, no offense intended, Hef in the grotto, washing down his little blue friend with a glass or three of BC in anticipation of innumerable momentos de verdad. 95.7% Syrah, 4.3% Raspberry.
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.
