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.
Food Pairings for Columbia Crest Grand Estates
Bright chardonnay with an immediate attack of sweet pears and pineapple with a candy-like nectar of peaches, nectarines and even apricot, but all in balance. Crisp, almost floral nose. The absence of toasty oak is a nice hint of vanilla. Actually reminiscent of a lovely Batard Montrachet I had before. The second day, some oak came through, but very slight.

This unoaked chardonnay is a fruity and special find. It is crisp, clean more like a Riesling than one usually thinks of a chardonnay. This is a nice wine that went well with our turkey dinner on Thanksgiving. If you like fruity but not too sweet, this is a great find.
Promising nose, with lots of carmel-coated pears, but the palate is quickly overwhelmed by a bitter, oppressive oakiness that gets worse with every sip. Which is a shame, because the grapes seem to have a lot of nice hidden fruit. Spectator's on crack. $12
No oak gets in the way of this delicious, dry, citrusy chard. The finist is on the mid-palate, and lingers and lingers.
smooth, mellow, no after-taste. not too sweet and not too dry.
External Reviews for Columbia Crest Grand Estates
From the winery, 'The Two Vines Chardonnay offers fruit-forward apple and pear aromas with a hint of lemon citrus leading into a balanced crispness and creaminess on the palate. The lingering finish is of lush fruit. A lighter style designed for immediate enjoyment, this Chardonnay perfectly captures the varietal intensity indicative of Columbia Valley wines.'
Columbia Crest's Chardonnay is a perennial "best buy" pick and this rendition shows every sign of making the grade again. Pineapple and layers of butterscotch, cinnamon and nutmeg are expressed in the nose. Clean and spicy on the palate, this medium-bodied wine's lingering aftertaste makes this a wine to savor.
From Washington comes this easy-to-find and easy-to-afford Chardonnay. It's bright in flavor, supple in texture and brimming with pineapple cream and spice notes that harmonize nicely through the generous finish. Drink now through 2003.
Tight, lean and green, with right, appley fruit and apple-pie spices. This is stylish juice, forward and delicious, with a refreshing liveliness that invites a second glass.
Here's a fresh and fragrant white delivering an enticing mouthful of apple and citrus flavors that echo on the harmonious finish. From one of Washington's biggest names; this vintage is lighter than usual, but the wine is a very good value, as usual. Drink now.
Cross my heart, it is impossible to separate the delicious, tropical orange grove fruitiness of this wine from the full-figured, butter and oak infused texture. Lifting acidity lends support and length, making this smooth wine the perfect match for any occasion.
Smoky, ripe, honeyed fruit and grapiness are pleasant on this light to medium-bodied wine, which possesses decent acidity and length. It should be drunk over the next year.
This Chardonnay offers fruit-forward apple aromas with hints of spice and honey. Rich flavors reminiscent of apple pie and cinnamon end with a pleasant note of toasted marshmallow. Vibrant Washington fruit characters, with fresh acidity marry beautifully with toasty oak nuances.
