D H Gustafson Family Vineyards Estate Zinfandel 2008
The 2008 harvest marked the first harvest of fruit from our young St. Peter's Church plantings in the Old Vineyard Block. These vines added a youthful, fruit forward intensity to the wine and helped to balance the more mature flavors developing in our Heritage Tree Block. Aged in a light complement of new oak to aid in harmonizing the flavors, this wine showcases classic Zinfandel lushness while maintaining structure and balance.
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.
