Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

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.

Winemaker's Notes:

Deep, complex and polished, the Mettler Cabernet Sauvignon is indistinguishable in character and from its well known counterparts in the premium cabernet districts in California. Layers of supple black cherry, mocha and vanilla flavors, are underscored by pretty toasty oak and well-integrated tannins. A rich mouth-feel guides you gently toward the long, lush, elegant finish. The grapes chosen for this wine came from two of our outstanding blocks of Cabernet - both of which are planted from unique French clones. For each vineyard, the planting and trellis system were customized for the vineyard site. The vines on one of the vineyards, situated on a hillside, are contoured to follow the natural curvature of a bordering creek. The other vineyard has a unique trellis system to help the grapes ripen more evenly. A custom-designed modification to the VSP (vertical shoot postitioning) trellis system allows the fruit in this vineyard to bask in the morning sunlight but then shelters it from the afternoon sun. The crop level was controlled using various viticulture techniques and was farmed with the latest biologically integrated farming system practices. This includes a reduction of synthetic chemicals and fertilizers in the vineyard; controlled deficient irrigation; and cover crops, which help to maintain the structure and fertility of the soil. Oak: 13 months new and aged French oak
