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.

Very nice chard with good fruit and clean, crisp acidity. Excellent balance.
I had this as part of a Cakebread tasting with food pairing that I won! This was a wonderful chardonnay. It was toasty and smells like fresh butter. Lightly oaked, it was silky creamy smooth although it had a slightly bitter end. The sad part is that the food pairing of mango salsa salad was not that good. The red onion a little over powering and the tomatoes was too much acid that cut the smoothness. Otherwise, mango was a great idea!

External Reviews for Cakebread Cellars Chardonnay Napa Valley Reserve
On the full-bodied, yet sleek palate, the wine offers concentrated, beautifully focused, peach, apple and citrus zest flavors, with mineral and spice tones enlivening the long, refreshing finish.
Yields a rich, mouth filling Chardonnay with yeasty, sweet green apple and straw scents; pure, ripe apple, melon and citrus flavors; and a long, refreshingly crisp finish.
Perfumed aromas of ripe pear and white peach lead to a grainy youthful edge. This is most impressive where it should be. The finish unveils delicate fruit notes. Drink now through 2019. -JL Wine Spectator. A Chardonnay wine from California in USA. 2010 Cakebread Cellars Chardonnay 750ml

Rich and oaky, with pineapple jam, tangerine juice, buttered toast and vanilla spice flavors. Itrsquo;s a big, opulent wine, but a little in your face. Drink now.
Creamy, yeasty, butterscotch-y aromas that quickly reveal ripe peach and yellow apple fruit scents layered with nutmeg and cinnamon spice notes. Full-bodied, round and extremely rich and creamy on the palate, the wine marries lush apple, peach and crème brulee flavors with refreshing mineral tones, culminating in a long, lively finish buoyed by bright acidity and a hint of citrus zest. Beautifully structured, this should age beautifully in bottle for another 5-7 years.
