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 Gascon Reserva Malbec
I'm a huge fan of most Mendoza Malbecs I've tried. This one just didn't do it for me. The character and berry notes you generally expect in a Malbec were almost completely masked by an oakiness and spiciness. Even after decanting for a while it was too overpowering for me to enjoy. If you're a fan of oaky cabs or perhaps some of the more heavy Bordeauxs then you may enjoy this, just don't go into expecting the usual Malbec character.
I had this by the glass in a restaurant. I liked it so well, I ordered a second glass, which is unlike me. I loved the chocolate aftertaste. I just purchased a bottle of the Reserva 2008. My response is the same. I love it! FYI - I am a fan of northern Italian wines and tend to like earthy wines that are less "berryish". My husband likes "berryish" wines. He likes this wine too. It is one of the rare wine that pleases both of us.
Burgeoning with distinctive dark fruit flavors and aromas, this full-bodied, intensely flavorful wine offers layers of ripe plum, blackberry and dark cherry, accented by hints of chocolate and black pepper. Round tannins and final notes of brown spice and oak combine to create a firm, persistent finish. 92% Malbec, 5% Petit Verdot, 3% Cabernet Franc.
