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.

This Pinot is huge and full, and has intensely ripe fruit. Not for the elegant Pinot drinker, this wine, at 14.9% alcohol, has so much fruit that lots of Californian producers are embracing it and trying to emulate it. The huge flavors of wild cherry, intertwined with sage and other spices, all in balance with the tannins and alcohol, make this wine distinctly California. This is the second label of Peter Michael, and considering what some of his wines go for, this is really a great deal.

A youthful Pinot Noir, possessing a smooth body and a core of deep, black cherry fruit. A velvety structure and mild tannins make this a versatile Pinot Noir, capable of satisfying any crowd.
