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 Martinelli Zinfandel Russian River Valley Vigneto di Evo
The grapes for this wine obviously had the ripeness to produce 17.2% alcohol, but unfortunately not enough fruit density to support this kind of alcohol level. (This is in complete contrast to, for example, the Martinelli Giuseppe and Louisa Zin, which is likewise very high in alcohol but has tremendous flavor density to back it up.) The "Vigneto di Evo" has a nice, earthy Rhone-style flavor profile of kirsch and cassis with a touch of spice - no raisiny or late-harvest notes. But the flavors are light-weight and laid-back and are simply obliterated by the alcohol. This Zin softened considerably with airing (or maybe it was just palate re-calibration), but there's just not enough flavor interest here to be higher rated. Certainly not bad, but it should be served with pizza or tomato-based pasta or big-time barbecue.
