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.
Quite dark black plum color. Earthy, woody aromas. Noticeable blackberry fruit on the tip of the tongue, but that diminishes fairly quickly. Nice mouth-filling roundness. Firm, but not overbearing tannin. Sufficient acid to make it a good food match. This is a terrific wine. Slight bitterness on the back of the palate makes it seem more refreshing. Hard to believe that 15% ABV. US$29.99 at the Wine Club in Santa Ana.

Great turkey wine. Beautiful fruit and red pepper notes. Best Zinfandel I had this year.
