De Forville Nebbiolo d'Alba 2008

Member Review by dspbob:

According to Gary V C's vocabulary, this vino has initial aroma hint of "poopi-ness", funkyness, sulfur kind of ovewhelm the nose, "I thought I just wasted $20 BONES. Then the Sous-bois ness fadedd , transition starts to sour cheery, green herb Anise tone, slight anise to Rose and sustaining strong ripe Mulberry-current scent. The fragrences are indeed complex. Now the mid palette is Green tea, pleasant, delicate with slight tannic personality. The finish is long, slight sourness, Green tea, Anise bitterness, flowery scent and light dryness lasting around the tongue for a few minutes. Not bad. For twenty US dollars, I would recommended. Bought it at beltramo in menlo Park, CA

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
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.
