De Cavalieri Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Member Review by TGillette:

Only slightly spicy with generally dark flavors but a strain of something a bit more light and unusual. I first noticed a bit of a plum flavor, then later identified the other flavor as reminding me very strongly of acai berry. I personally enjoy wines that aren't very dry, and this wine is only slightly so with just enough sweetness for my particular tastes. The acai flavor is what really made it stand out for me. I'm sure many pairings would work, but I can attest that it pairs very well with dark chocolate.

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.
