Cielo Purple Mountain Saddlerock Malibu Cabernet 2007

Member Review by Tyler Worth:

91 points. The aroma is extremely rich, dark, and deep with tones of blackcurrants and blackberries being bathed in a stream of dark chocolate. There is a sweet, creaminess about the entire aroma, with spicy notes of black pepper on the edges, combined with a very impressive backbone of firm, black stone aromas. The palate is almost hedonistically rich and ripe, with juicy black and red fruit tones bursting onto the scene at the first sip. Edgy, gripping tannins appear, playing off of suede and cacao powder notes, which seem to mingle flawlessly with the plush and creamy core of this wine. There is an excellent structure and sense of balance to this wine, making it incredibly smooth and enjoyable to sip and study. If you want to experience a Malibu wine with all the glamour and style of its hometown, this is a wine worth trying.

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
