Darmagi Gaja 2001
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.
Nice dark ruby red looking thick and full bodied in the glass. Takes a bit of wristy swirling to open up, be patient, a wonderful nose of spices, sugar, plums and dark fruits. A little herbaceous and hot too. Fat and bold on the mouth feel, a little oaky at the end but a very pleasant tasting experience, not too much fruit on the palate, needs a few more years. 2012 and on is my guess. 91 Points

Superclean with raspberry plum and cedar aromas and flavors. Just a hint of vanilla. Full-bodied with silky tannins and a long caressing finish. Very fine indeed. Stylish. Best after 2008. 2800 cases made. JS Wine Spectator 93 points Oct 31 2005.

A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from Piedmont in Italy. 2001 Gaja Darmagi Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml
Color: Intense, deep red, almost black. Aroma: Opulent layers of concentrated fruit. Taste: Though very Cabernet in character, Darmagi owes its distinctive, austere personality to the unique terroir of Barbaresco. Excellent fruit with strong cassis flavors and impressive power on the palate carry through to the long finish with persistent soft tannins. Great aging potential.
