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.

2002 Casa Real - Descorchados, 95 Points and "Best Chilean Red"/
/ When I was in Chile in January, the winery presented the 1999 Casa Real. It seems clear that Santa Rita Casa Real is on of Chile's benchmark wines.
/ Dark and muscular, with lots of tobacco, cocoa, loam and currant notes supported by dense but fresh tannins. Has ample length on the finish. Not as dynamic as previous vintages, but still outstanding.
/ ...purple colored with complex aromatics of spice box, tobacco, graphite, red currants, and black currants. It has an intense entry onto the palate with spicy, layered flavors, ripe tannins, and great balance in its full-bodied personality.
Drinks with Les Dames: Cecilia Torres, Santa Rita/ A great example of how well Santa Rita’s upper-tier wines can age, this one has smoothed out a bit and has taken on a lusher quality than when it was first released. Rich, ripe blackberry and currant flavors, with roasted coffee, bittersweet chocolate and sweet, smoky earthy notes that fold together on a long finish.
/ A classic cabernet from Alto Maipo, Casa Real offers an exuberant character in this warm vintage with aromas of blackberry, dark chocolate and cassis. The palate is tense with muscular tannins and acidity, while the fruit concentration fills that structure with charm.
/ Funky barnyard with cedar, cassis, wet hay, toasty oak, plum, and dried fruit on the nose. Inky black fruit on the palate with smooth tannins. Fatty beef; braised brisket; short ribs with spices.
Color: Pale straw. Aroma: Reminiscent of citrus blossoms, lemon peel and grapefruit, rounded out by appealing herbaceous notes. Taste: Nuances of citrus fruit and white peach, supported by a zesty acidity and smooth texture that lingers on the palate.
