Don David 2005
Not as good as hoped. Stayed quite closed despite long time in glass. Pehaps I drank it too young (April 2008). Nose only had slight plum fruit, body had good, thick texture, but very closed. Bit of fruit, probably cherry or plum, but not enough to really tell. Finish was very alcoholed, some tannins, no fruit.Add winemaker's notes
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.

Balanced complexity, dry, nice dinner wine.
I'd just served this along with a couple of other bottles during my wedding. People loved this wine, and said they'd be purchasing it again. Quite a bold wine IMO, and very drinkable with a heavy meal such as beef. Very dry, and sharp with the feel. Not sure if I'm a big fan, but glad some people really liked it.
