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.

Solid 'entry' Cabernet from Stags Leap. Like the merlot there was caramel and spice on the nose ... some leather as well. Lots of black cherry in the taste with good structure. I like this wine.

Chocolate, black cherry and dark plummy notes on the nose. Woodsy and dry cedar flavors at first, but the wine opened up after 30 minutes yielding much more fruit. Licorice and spice, giving way to blueberry and anise. Spicy acidic finish with firm tannins. Lots of aging to be had.

I had this with bbq ribs (at Redstone) and the pairing was one that you marvel at long after the meal. The smokiness of the ribs and the merlot made a wonderful marriage.
External Reviews for Chase Creek Estate Merlot Napa Valley
The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Artemis exhibits notes of black currants, plum, licorice, roasted herbs, and some new oak. It was one of the more aromatic wines of the group, but when it hits the palate, some rather harsh tannins, obvious herbaceousness, and jagged acidity kick in. I would drink this wine sooner rather than later, as it is likely to dry out, although the acids will keep it alive for some time to come.

A stunning success for its wonderfully extracted, complex mélange of blackberry, cassis, sweet anise, plum and cured tobacco. That's what rigorous selection can accomplish in a so-so vintage. The flavors are wrapped in the rich, sweet tannins and balanced acids you'd expect from this appellation. Might age, but best now through next year.
Intense, complicated and challenging. It's an intellectual wine that will appeal to hedonists with its berry, chocolatey, meaty flavors and instant drinkability. Yet aficionados will find plenty to think about. Will it age? Will the fruit outlast the tannins? Is it merely likeable, or serious? The answers are yes, yes, and serious.
Plush, spicy, plummy and generous, with opulent currant, plum and chocolate aromas and flavors, finely integrated tannins and a sense of elegance that persists through the tasty finish. Best to drink after 1995.
Wine Tasting Notes A vibrant nose of plum, cassis, nutmeg, black licorice and hints of rosemary greets the taster, with additional layers of raspberry, tealeaf, rose petals and vanilla. Concentrated flavors of black cherry, plum, cassis, baked cherry pie, cocoa, toast, and allspice intermingle with dusty tannins, hints of white pepper and tobacco. Perfectly balanced and firmly structured, this wine has significant aging potential and is ready to enjoy now with an herb-stuffed turkey accompanied by a velvety chestnut soup.
