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 Rutherford Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon
A bit flat and nutty on the nose with herbal, dried grass base notes that add an attractive dimension to the earthy persimmon and red fruit aromas. This is really well balanced in a fresh style that highlights the supple tannins of Merlot. Excellent, juicy acidity keeps this fresh and lively in the mouth. There's a touch of under-ripeness here that shows up as a base of herbal, earthy flavors, but that just adds complexity to the core of blackberry fruit. There’s a nice touch of oak adding supporting spice notes and an overlay of vanilla. This leads to a moderately long, slightly peppery and savory finish that ends on a candied cranberry note. Pretty solid and an easy to drink offering. 89pts
A little alcoholic on the nose, though this does show nice raspberry, briar and fennel seed notes underlain with some spicy vanilla oak and a touch of tar. Big in the mouth but not terrible heavy, this is rather dark tasting with plenty of licorice and toffee notes wrapped around the core of raspberry and prune fruit. Shows a nice layering of wood spice. A big wine that’s a touch disjointed, needs food to tame it. 84pts
Delicious! Obviously a bit hot (15.5% alcohol), but very fruity as well. Despite the heat (and you can somewhat TASTE the alcohol, not just smell it), it's very smooth. Probably much better with food (like a nice steak), it's great on its own! Once you let it open up, it becomes an amazing wine, and a great deal!
Plush aromas of boysenberry, raspberry, and dark chocolate
Ok wine. Grows on you.
External Reviews for Rutherford Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon
A classic full-bodied California Cabernet with a rich ruby color and and flavors of sweet black cherry, plum, and blackberry, followed by a cascade of firm tannins.
Ripe and pithy, with spicy pear and apple flavors that are complex and focused. Drink now.
Rich in texture, with ripe flavors of blackberry and currant mixing with sweet, spicy oak on the elegant finish.
Sweet as a dessert, with vanilla, buttercream, brown-sugared pastry crust and pineapple custard flavors. Lots of people like this style, but it's kind of simple.
There are 16,000 cases of this spectacular bargain in Chardonnay. This 2007 from, of all places, Napa Valley, is a beautifully fruited wine (orange blossoms, nectarines, poached pears, and a hint of pineapples) revealing little oak, medium body, zesty freshness, and gorgeously pure fruit. This dry, delicious 100% Chardonnay is best consumed over the next 1-2 years.
Elevated in its tannic structure, and the way the oak plays with the ripe fruit. The flavors of blackberries, black currants and sweet smoky cedar lead to a rich, spicy finish. Very nice Napa Cabernet at this price.
As ripe as they come, with lush, mouthfilling flavors of blackberry pie, cherry tart, chocolate and vanilla cream. Fortunately therersquo;s a wealth of dusty tannins and good acidity for balance. Finishes dry, although the fruit is so ripe, itrsquo;s almost sweet.
A lovely ruby color with aromas of boysenberry and currant, with vanilla spice and earthy hints of forest floor. A full-bodied wine with rich tannins. Big and delicious flavors of boysenberry, toasty caramel and cranberry. A well-balanced wine - ready to drink but will age nicely for 4 to 5 years.
