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.
Food Pairings for Freemark Abbey Merlot Napa Valley
Vintage and Winemaker’s Notes: This wine has an intense, deep, dark ruby color. The aroma is forward with a rich black cherry with some berry, plum and dark chocolate. There is a touch of oak and bay laurel, with intriguing cinnamon/nutmeg spiciness. This wine is full flavored with lots of depth and well integrated tannins. Growing Season Notes: Heaviest winter rains finished by mid-February. A sudden warming trend at the end of February started bud growth. Set began in mid-May with weather generally cool. By June temperatures had warmed and weather was largely moderate and even, with morning cloud cover or cool evening breezes. Harvest timing was normal.
