Domaine Daniel et Denis Alary Côtes du Rhône Villages Cairanne 2007
RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
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.
