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.

David Long is one of the greatest guys in the business. I had the good fortune of selling and drinking these wines upon release and believe strongly that Elevation 1147 was one of the best wines of the 1997 vintage. That not withstanding, it might be good to pull some corks and see where they stand...many of the 97's were so opulent upon release that nothing was left for the cellar.

An extraordinary effort. Dark, firm, richly flavored and beautifully structured, with a deeply concentrated core of currant, black cherry, cedar, anise and coffee. Finishes with an amazingly long and richly flavored aftertaste. Best from 2003 through

Winemaker's Notes:

Composition This wine is composed of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Vineyards Planted in 1978, the David Arthur Estate Vineyards are located on the top of Pritchard Hill, overlooking the Napa Valley. Pritchard Hill sits at the North East end of the Napa Valley and is part of the Vaca Mountain Range; the soils here are orange-red and extremely rocky. The vineyard we source the Elevation fruit from, sits at an elevation of 1147 feet above sea level. These few rows of vines have been consistent in their exceptional quality and intriguing flavor profile, inspiring us to bottle the Elevation 1147 as a single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. Fermentation and Aging Grapes were soaked and fermented in stainless steel tanks for 6 weeks. The wine was then transferred to 60 gallon French Oak barrels and aged for 21 months.
