Clos du Val Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 1980
The flavors are dotted with spice notes, the aromas carry a whiff of black currants and herbs, all of which lasts to the bottom of the (half) bottle...This particular Cabernet has long been one of my favorites, even though it's usually a bit leaner and less overly fruity than most of its Napa brethren. The flavors are nicely concentrated and dotted with spice notes, the aromas carry a whiff of blackcurrants and herbs and the pleasure lasts all the way to the bottom of the bottle.
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.
