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 Qupé Grenache Santa Ynez Valley Purisima Mountain Vineyard
Wine Tasting NotesThis is a classic vintage of Bien Nacido Syrah structured, balanced, spicy with persistent fruit. The aromas show typical cool climate character of white and black pepper, thyme and dried raspberries. Tannins are moderated by rich fruit and spices with the kind of refreshing acidity that makes you want more. This ranks among our best ever and will age nicely for 10-15 years.
Notes on the Qupe Roussanne Bien Nacido Hillside Estate Santa Maria Valley 2005 : WINE ADVOCATE REVIEW: 92 POINTS A stunning effort, the 2005 Roussanne Bien Nacido Vineyard reveals classic aromas of quince, rose petals, honeysuckle, lemon oil, and marmalade. This medium to full-bodied white possesses fabulous fruit purity, presence, depth, and intensity in addition to a long, lingering finish. Drink this terrific Roussanne during its first 1-2 years of life, but if you have the guts to age it, I would not be surprised if it were performing well in 10-15 years. WA # , #172 (Aug 2007) Robert ParkerNVWE NOTES: This is a youthfully bright, optimally ripe and distinctive Roussanne, with tightly wound aromas of citron, minerals and roasted cereal grains, made exotic by overlays of mango and kiwi. In the mouth it proves palate-coating and quite distinctive in flavor, with pear and tropical fruits over a coiled background of lime and grapefruit. It is extremely long and never less than youthful, and despite its obvious current charms, it will be much more distinctive and delicious in another two years. 1,200 6 packs produced.QUPE ROUSSANNE BIEN NACIDO HILLSIDE ESTATE SANTA MARIA VALLEY 2005
