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.

Editorial Reviews for Frei Brothers Chardonnay Russian River Valley Reserve
A bit subdued on the nose with a nice core of pineapple and lime zest fruit overlaid with spicy, sweet, slightly marshmallowy oak. A bit soft on entry, then this turns fairly firm in the mouth with a nice spine of acid lending freshness to apple and almost peachy fruit that is wrapped in caramel and creme brulee accents. there’s a hint of creaminess that emerges on the backend along with a mineral note and some grilled pineapple flavors. That creamy note takes over on the finish, along with a touch of tannins, giving this power and drive on the moderately long finish. A bit big and obvious but well done in the style. Hopefully the wood integrates a bit over the coming year. 87pts
On first taste, this wine was pleasant but fairly unremarkable. We drank it first with a salad course (basic green salad with vinaigrette), and it was not a great pairing. We drank a second glass with a rich roast chicken and it was fantastic - it unearthed the richer flavors claimed on the bottle. With the salad alone, only the green apple notes seemed strong. Price: David bought it on sale, around $12
Our wines are a pure expression of the land. We are farmers at heart, and we cultivate our vineyards to give us the kind of grapes that make exceptional wines. Hailing from Sonoma's most revered appellations, our wines bring to life the unique terroir of each place, in each bottle.
