Gianaclis Vineyards Obelisk Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Full red color. The bouquet shows black currant and blackberries with some red and black cherries. These fruits also appear on the palate. This wine is light and easy to drink. Wine making existed in Egypt since the time of the ancient Egyptians. Recent discoveries found that wine was used both as food and medicine during the ancient Egyptian civilization. The production of wine started at the very early stages of the Egyptian civilization. Evidence of wine in ancient Egypt could clearly be seen on pictures painted on pottery and on tombs paintings which show slaves harvesting grapes from vines and wine being poured from ceramic vases into different saucers. A recent discovery found traces of wine deep inside the tomb of Scorpion I, one of Egypt's first pharaohs. Wine making was still evident in Egypt's history even after the period of the ancient Egyptians. The Greeks and the Romans were known to have made wine from the vast grapevines that existed all along the Nile valley

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.
