Sierre Madre Pinot Noir Santa Maria Valley 2008

External Review:

Rating: 86/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the October 2010 issue. Led in the nose by likeable, medium-deep red-cherry fruit and following with like-minded flavors, this mid-sized, very straightforward Pinot veers to obvious acidity after its rounded beginnings. It is ultimately on the lean and underfilled side, but it is perky and bright.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
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.
