Les Garrigues Cotes du Rhone 2012
Les Garrigues Cotes du Rhone is reminiscent of the local, lusty, easy-drinking reds in Southern France that are downed by the pitcher in the local cafes. The wine gets its name from the French word, Garrigues, which means "underbrush of wild herbs and spices". The indigenous Garrigues which grows wild throughout Southern France is said to impart a slightly spicy flavor to the wines of the region.
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.
