Domaine Daniel et Denis Alary Côtes du Rhône Villages Cairanne 2007
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.
Dark ruby color, nice bouquet. Good fruit/berry accents initially, smooth finish.
This wine has apparently come together since users gave it tags like "rough," " sharp," or "disjointed." I enjoyed it last night with a friend. It had a gorgeous robe and won us over promptly with its velvety smoothness and seductive depth and flavor. It is not a particularly complex wine but it is worth 3.5 "glasses." I have not been drinking Cairanne for a long time but I have tried 5 - 6 different ones this year. This was one of the two best.
