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.

Very varietal on the nose, a bit creamy and with a nice oak spice base. This delivers plenty of brambly blackberry fruit with gentle, almost floral top notes and a hint of Red Hots. Soft, creamy and rich in the mouth, there’s plenty of fresh black cherry and black plum fruit here and it really lies over the oak like a blanket. On the finish, the oak pops through with caramel and butterscotch flavors along with drying tannins. There’s also a bit of heat here marring the finish. This is a fairly big, rich and intense example of Zinfandel, structured and dense. 88pts
