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.
Interesting metallic "rusty pipe" in the nose, and a dry, spicy, alcohol and something akin to witch hazel on the palette... there is an allure to this wine, but I think it needs more time.
Destined to be a classic. Drinks well now, but shows a lot of potential down the stretch--imagining this wine in 5-10 years is pure pleasure.

The earthy, smoky notes intermixed with notions of black fruits and road tar found in this blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot are classic Graves traits. Sweet, dense fruit, with tremendous opulence, a layered mouthfeel, and excellent puri... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2008 Haut Bergey 1500ml
91-93 Barrel sample. A wine that offers all the right characters. The fruit has a lively, vivid juiciness, with sweet berry fruits. The tannins have just a touch of toast, but essentially come from the dense fruit. R.V. (12/31/2009) - 92 Wine Enthusiast. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2008 Haut Bergey 6000ml
