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.

Rating: 88/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the August 2010 issue. Duckhorn Sauvignons have never show much of a bent to the grape's grassier side, and here again the wine goes right to a mix of melons and pears as its main motif. Ripe and rounded and less briskly balanced than its more acidy brethren, it will wash down varied chicken dishes with ease as it will any number of meaty fish preparations.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.

A Sauvignon Blanc wine from California in USA. 2009 Duckhorn Sauvignon Blanc 750ml

Offers versatility when it comes to culinary pairings because of its incredible roundness and fullness of texture and traditionally has short-term aging potential.
