Estate Hatzimichalis Cabernet Sauvignon Kapnias Hatzimichalis 2006

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Lovely nose, bursting with carob, tobacco, big black currant fruit, a hint of poblano, and some framing notes of vanilla oak. This is soft and almost plush on entry with good supporting acids. Very bright on the palate with rich currant and Italian plum fruit accented by a hint of vanilla and some distinct wood spice, cedary elements that live under the fruit. Fairly fruity in the mouth but lean in a way and certainly dry, and a bit tight. This is a fine example of the blending of new world fruit with old world structure. With air the flavors become more complex and more distinct. Really lovely wine, love the bit of anise that pops on the backend and minty/sagey notes that add to the rather aromatic finish. Very nicely done and will improve in the cellar for 5-8 years. 91pts

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.
