Carr Vineyards "Turner Vineyards" Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Gris 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Nutty and biscuity on the nose. This smells a lot like applesauce and Mini Wheats. Bright and rich in the mouth, this layers on plenty of intense apple and roasted pear fruit with nicely measured accents of toast and spice ending on a nicely mineral and dry finish. A big Pinot Gris with a lot of nuttiness married to a dry Alsatian flavor profile. This is powerful stuff. Break it out for goose or grilled fish. 89pts

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.
