Altamira de Los Andes Malbec Reserve 2009

Member Review by finewinebuyer:

We had this wine at The Grove in Austin. Before we sat down to dinner, we had tried a flight of Argentine Malbecs (nothing in there to rave about) then ordered this wine with dinner, and are we glad that we did. This is what Malbec should taste like. The color is a deep purple, in the mouth you get the fruit up front, and it is soft like velvet, but more interesting than most Malbecs I have tasted, it is bigger, rounder, and has a nice long finish, which is rare in my experience with Malbecs. We bought 4 cases upon leaving.

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.
