Cuna de Reyes Rioja Crianza 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The main varietal grape in this Rioja is Tempranillo, with some Grenache and Mazuelo. It boasts the typical ripe fruit aromas with a vanilla-berry finish. While grapes from La Rioja Alta are used, they are combined with grapes from contracted vineyards in the area. Quality of the fruit is upmost and always has been with the winery. It starts in the daily care of the vineyards. The fruit is carefully selected at harvest. Fermentation occurs for 10 days in stainless steel vats with a controlled temperature of no more than 30˚C. Maceration follows for 14 days where the juice is still in contact with the skins and daily pumping occurs. The wine is aged for 12 months in American and French noble oak with racking twice. This preserved process accounts for many of the well-regarded wines of the area.

Layered Rice Pudding

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.
