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 Napa Cabernet
A touch of dusty earth, perhaps even stemmy on the nose, which also shows red currant fruit, well measured vanilla and lightly toasted spices and a touch of toasted almond and dry fruit. Medium bodied and fairly bright on entry, this blends some riper flavors of dried fruit and prune with light caramel edges and layers it all over red currant and cherry fruit. There are nice spice and vanilla accents showing on the mid palate that add complexity but don’t overpower the fruit, leading to a slightly tannic but palate-freshening finish thats pretty long with lingering, slightly spicy black cherry flavors and lightly chewy fruit tannins. With air, a subtle herbal note emerges on the palate as well. Love the way this feels in the mouth, though the flavors are just a touch riper than a very solid value. 88pts
This smells floral, sandy and taut on the nose with a wisp of smoke and some lemon pith. A bit fat in the mouth with some slick richness, this does offer up attractive pear and berry fruit; but it’s a bit ponderous on the palate before turning hard and lean on the finish. This is a bit on the fruiter side, downplaying the grassier elements of the grape. 83pts
Nice Napa chard, pretty much down the middle with a nice balance of fruit, oak, butter, acidity.
Slightly bitter wine with a distinct smokiness and peppery notes. Excellent with spicy food like curries.
A sweet Chardonnay with a bit of honeysuckle and pineapple flavors. Rich without being overly oak/buttery. A nicely drinking wine. Very enjoyable.
External Reviews for Rutherford Ranch Napa Cabernet
Succulent apple and nectarine flavors show off the unoaked portion of this chardonnay, while barrel-fermented lots add fresh almond notes and a creamy texture. The blend combines in a generous, bright white with finesse, a wine that performs far beyond its price. Serve this with any fresh catch. Best Buy.
Made in an oaky, creamy style to appeal to popular tastes, this Chardonnay has jammy pineapple flavors. It's brisk in acidity and is somewhat simple, but the price isn't bad.
The 2009 Chardonnay offers up aromas of nectarines, orange blossoms and white peaches. It is a naked, medium-bodied, fresh, lively Chardonnay to drink over the next 1-2 years. This is another excellent value winery offering low-priced, tantalizing red and whites.
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.
Ripe and pithy, with spicy pear and apple flavors that are complex and focused. Drink now.
Sweet as a dessert, with vanilla, buttercream, brown-sugared pastry crust and pineapple custard flavors. Lots of people like this style, but itrsquo;s kind of simple.
