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.

Winemaker's Notes:

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. Statistics: # Varietal Composition: 79% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot # Vineyards: 37% Carpy Ranch (Rutherford), 36% Red Barn Ranch (Rutherford), 9% Round Pond Vineyard (Rutherford), 6% Zinfandel Lane Vineyard (Rutherford), 4% Freemark Vineyard (St. Helena), 4% Watson Vineyard (Rutherford), 3% Wood Ranch (Rutherford), 1% Berggruen Vineyard (St. Helena) # Fermentation: Open-top stainless steel fermenters # Aging: 12 months in 60 gallon French and American Oak barrels # Alcohol: 14.1% # pH: 3.63 # Acid: 0.65 g/100 mL # Number of Cases Produced: 5968 cases
