Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.

Soft and fluffy wine. Very easy to drink. Full of earthy red fruit, with a huge cranberry finish. I like this wine a lot.

Full body filled with blackberries and a touch of wood. Slight spice and nice acidity.

This is a classic Doura. Dry and crisp its a Red that can hold its own with beef and lasagne. It is not a fruity mellow wine. Its not meant to be. It provides the classic taste associate with Clarets of the past. It does not have the back taste of a Chaiti.
