Herdade Do Esporão Vinho Regional Alentejano Monte Velho 2005
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.
Opened a bottle of this last night and it was delicious, with just the right balance of sweetness and acidity. It had a luscious mouth feel and paired well with everything I ate it with -- an uncommon combination of brie, cucumbers and nuts. It neither overpowered the food nor was overpowered by the food -- rather the cucumber flavors were enhanced after a sip of wine. I'm just sad that the bottle is now empty.
