Veedercrest Cabernet Sauvignon St. Helena Napa Valley 2006

Member Review by EMark:

Big woody nose. Pleasant on introduction to the tongue, but nondescript. At the tip of the tongue it seems watery. It takes a while to get to the mid-palate and edges of the tongue before a carmelly, raisiny flavor is detected. "Carmelly, raisiny" would make one think this is an over-done "cooked" wine, but it is not. Everything here is pretty subtle--not overbearing. Quite subdued tannin. Now is probably a good time to be drinking this wine. I don't see much more aging potential, here. US$64.79 at Total 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.
