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.

Truly fascinating nose of very ripe dark fruits with an odd accompaniment I can't quite place . . . maybe bazooka bubble gum wrapper? Very unusual and quickly evolving. Tasted of cherries mixed with pipe tobacco with a little "fake fruit" on the mid-palate finished off with light oak and pleasing soft tannins. I don't know if this is a wine that would please everyone . . . but I enjoyed it quite a bit.

HUGE nose (was filling the room within 10 minutes): Black Currant, Blackberry, Mushroom, Green Pepper, Bay Leaf, Mint, Cocoa, Cigar Box and a little Strawberry to tie it all together. Taste was primarily fine tobacco together with a bit of camphor and cherry on the mid-palate, followed by a nice, well-rounded finish with smooth tannins. This is not a fruity wine and from the taste I believe it would match especially well with lamb or a well seasoned pork chop. A pleasant wine and worth seeking out at around $20-$22. [87]
