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.

Nose of cranberry, currant, underbrush, sage and white pepper. Some herbal notes. Hints of anise and plum. All red and purple fruit. On the palate, loamy and nicely balanced. Strong herbal element and driven by plum fruit. Wild berry, marionberry and blackberry nuances as well. Sage, brush and hints of green with some tomato leaf. Perhaps this needs a bit more time to integrate and evolve. I generally like Grgich zinfandel more. 86 pts. 5/10/13 at winery
