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.
Editorial Reviews for Robert Mondavi Winery Pinot Noir Carneros
This is fairly oaky on the nose and obviously so, with nice cherry fruit under the oak along with a hint of river stone and some vanilla bean. Smooth and understated, though with a certain richness in the mouth. This builds quickly, showing off dark cherry fruit backed up with noticeable tannins and creamy, toasty oak. The fruit takes on flashes of raspberry on the mid-palate and the spice integrates well then returns along with a wash of wood tannin on the moderately long, slightly sticky and hot finish. This will prove to be very popular but it's a touch clumsy with the oak for me. 88pts
My first impression of this wine was that the grape flavor overpowered all the other ones on the first taste. The wine became more balanced and smooth after a while.
External Reviews for Robert Mondavi Winery Pinot Noir Carneros
Robed in deep color, this Pinot Noir opens with the intense aromas of dark fruits - black cherries and plums - that echo on the palate. Well integrated acids bring a measure of vibrancy to the lush, fleshy texture, and fine-grained tannins lend structure into the smooth, lingering finish.
