Seven Hills Winery Red Bordeaux Blend Red Mountain Vintage Red Ciel du Cheval Vineyard 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

2006 gave us a blend slightly fuller-bodied than 2005: dominated by Cabernet, rounded with Merlot, using Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot for grace and complexity. Shows black & red fruits, maraschino cherry, marzipan and pungent, sweet spices in the nose. The palate is of red and black fruits over a polished, fine-grained structure. Bottled in April 2008, after 18 months cellared in fine French barrels. At release its structure indicates favorable medium to long-term aging qualities. This wine will open up over the next 6 to 12 months. Cellar for up to 4-8 years from the vintage.

Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

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.
