Pelaquie Cotes du Rhone 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Vividly fruity on the nose with great floral notes and a touch of peppery spice underlying the tobacco tinged blue plum and mulberry fruit. This has fine and subtle earthy complexity on the nose, if just a hint of VA adding lift. In the mouth this is quite smooth, moderately rich and yet on the midpalate it turns just a little austere and wonderfully transparent. the flavors are pure and bright, fresh wild strawberry, a hint of leafiness and some black pepper accents followed by a bit of blueberry and lovely fresh herbal notes through the moderately long finish. The tannins, slightly dusty, chocolate, and fresh, emerge on the finish lending mouthgrab and a hint of austerity to the finale. Lovely stuff. 88pts

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.
