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.
External Reviews for Doña Paula Merlot Tupungato Estate
Clean, with ripe pear and green apple notes that linger nicely on the medium-weight finish. Drink now.
Tasty, forward blackberry and grapey fruit flavors, with sweet spice and chocolate notes. Fresh, open finish. Drink now.
Smooth and round on the nose, with aromas of melon and honey. A bit soft but not flaccid, with a sweet, creamy flavor profile that blends apple and pear. Finishes light and clean, with a hint of vanilla.
Full, bright red. Red berries, tobacco, mocha and wild herbs on the nose, with a lightly stewed note that reminded me of a wine from Mediterranean France. Then supple, juicy and reasonably fresh, with red berry and spice flavors showing modest complexity and delineation. Possesses decent sweetness and intensity.
