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.
External Reviews for Vina Cobos Chardonnay
A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from Mendoza in Argentina. 2011 Vina Cobos Cabernet Sauvignon Felino 750ml
The 2011 Felino Malbec was picked from March 28 until May 3 from vineyards in Lujan de Cuyo, Maipu and Uco Valley, with malolactic fermentation in barrel and eight months in French and American oak, of which 20% is new. The bouquet offers much more delineation than the Merlot, with bright red currant and iodine notes, later joined by scents of crushed violet. The palate is full-bodied with dense, slightly aggressive tannins. There is a core of crisp black fruit with a saline finish that, again, feels a little brutish in the mouth. With bottle age, the edges will be rounded off, but it is severe and uncompromising at the moment. Drink now–2018.
Bright ruby-red. Aromas of crushed blackberry leather tree bark and dark chocolate reminded me a bit of mourvedre. Juicy moderately sweet and intense with noteworthy verve to its intense blackberry and black cherry flavors. Finishes with lovely floral lift and suave tannins. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
Spice and game notes mark this dark yet racy red, which features a core of spicy blackberry, kirsch and raspberry notes on the broad finish. Drink now.

Medium red-ruby. Higher-pitched on the nose than the merlot offering scents of blackberry mint and violet. Juicy supple and fresh with sweet cassis and black cherry flavors leavened by nicely integrated acidity and a note of menthol. Smooth approachable cabernet with ripe tannins and good length. Nicely done. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
