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.

Pale to medium ruby-purple colored the 2010 Moutere Pinot Noir has a slightly reduced rubber and tar character to begin giving way to a promising core of dark berries mulberries toast pepper tree bark and loam. Medium-bodied with a medium level of grainy tannins and mouth-filling black berry and savory flavors it finishes long with a touch of minerality in the finish. Drink this one now to 2017+. 91+ - Lisa Perrotti-Brown Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
Intense powerful and yet supremely elegant Pinot Noir with cherry mineral spice and nutty oak flavours. Long and linear - very classy wine that displays many subtle flavours on its lengthy finish. Accessible now but with good cellaring potential. Bob Campbell MW.
A ripe fresh and relatively deeply pitched nose features notes of plum dark berries and subtle spice elements. There is good punch and detail to the round and pure medium-bodied flavors that possess a generous even lush mouth feel all wrapped in a solidly persistent and complex finish. This is sufficiently forward that it could be enjoyed now but there is considerable upside development potential and I would thus advise waiting for a few years first. 2016+ Burghound.
