Greece Athenian Salad featuring RiceSelect™ Texmati® Brown Rice
Heart-healthy RiceSelect™ Texmati® Brown Rice has a slightly nutty taste that goes well with flavors like feta, olives, and Pinot Noir Wines
The goal for our Layer Cake wines is to maintain distinct varietal correctness and expression of terroir with whatever wine we make. The Layer Cake Pinot Noir follows the same path, but Pinot Noir is a much more finicky grape. It can be very rewarding, and incredibly challenging, to make a wine that has good extraction, ripe rich flavors, complex yet delicate aromatics and fine balance on the palate. With our 2010 Layer Cake Pinot Noir, we've achieved that goal and more. Fermented gently at cool temperatures to preserve aromatics, the wine was gently pressed and aged in French oak; partly new, but also much of it in our once-used Cherry Pie barrels. The result is a rich, delicious wine that screams Pinot Noir and fits right into the Layer Cake Wines line up.
