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.

Full ruby. Sexy claret-like aromas of plum, currant, graphite and chocolatey oak. Sweet and easygoing, with plum and currant fruit complemented by oak. In a slightly reductive style, finishing with broad tannins and a touch of oaky bitterness.

Very ripe and very primal still, delivering a large core of velvety-textured raspberry, fig and boysenberry fruit that is liberally laced with dark toast, pastis and roasted vanilla. Should settle in nicely with modest cellaring, as the structure is dense, but polished and integrated. Drink now through 2011.

Focused, with cedar and vanilla aromas leading the way for black cherry, currant and cocoa notes. Taut tanins frame the finish. More like a Cabernet than a Malbec. Drink now through 2008.

This plush red offers velvety blackberry, fig paste and warm currant confiture notes backed by mouthwatering ganache and espresso. A big wine, but driven and lively. Drink now through 2012.

As dense and hedonistic as pecan pie, this malbec offers plenty of caramel and dry fruit aromas. Despite its weight, the alcohol and tannins feel integrated. Save it for winter drinking.

Very toasty, offering showy mocha and spice aromatics, but therersquo;s also plenty of flesh, with lush raspberry, fig and plum notes that follow through on the long, polished finish. Drink now through 2010.
