Rued Cabernet Sauvignon Dry Creek Valley 2005
Classic Cab aromas of cassis, eucalyptus, and plum, all of which follow through on the palate. Still too young to drink, and at 15% alcohol not sure if time will completely eradicate the slightly hot finish, but it is a solid, well-made cabernet at the $45 price point that would put many Napa competitors at the same level to shame.Add winemaker's notes
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.

Food Pairings for Rued Cabernet Sauvignon Dry Creek Valley
We produced only 280 cases of this richly flavored estate wine. The near opaque color is purple/ruby to the eye. Aromas of black current, chocolate, ripe cherries, vanilla and nutmeg reside inside a faint halo of violet notes. This Cab expands on the palate with smooth tannins that envelope its medium body. More black current, bing cherry, pepper, and hints of mint make this a delicious and substantial Dry Creek Valley Cabernet. We expect it to arrive at peak maturity around 2012 and drink beautifully for many years thereafter.
