Francis Ford Coppola Malbec California Diamond Collection Celestial Blue Label 2008
While working on the film Tetro, in Argentina, Francis Coppola discovered the allure of Malbec, which until recently was seldom bottled as a single varietal in the United States. Malbec is less tannic than Cabernet but more so than Merlot, giving it a powerful structure but more immediate drinkability. Our Malbec was grown in several coastal vineyards, which experience an abundance of afternoon sun, little wind, and well-drained soils. Our 2009 vintage exudes rich, dark fruits, currants and cassis, but an inherent note of minerals and spice is what makes this wine distinctive and delicious.
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.
