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.

External Reviews for Chiarello Family Vineyards Zinfandel St. Helena Giana
Wine Tasting NotesA great Zinfandel is a food-lover's best friend; it easily goes spicy ribs to tangy cheese to dark chocolate. This is the biggest Giana made to date off of the vines that surround our house. It is a medium purple color, with pitched aromas of honeysuckle, raspberries, cola and mint. It has a sweet and very broad palate that has a real bubblegum entry before fanning out into clove, cinnamon, bittersweet chocolate and briary Zinberry fruit. The 16+ percent alcohol is well balanced by bright acidity.
