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 Pepper Bridge Cabernet Sauvignon Walla Walla Valley
Winemaker Notes: Our 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon offers intense aromas of dark berry and chocolate with the right hint of mineral and a spicy, smoky, cedar character. This full-bodied wine has a smooth and silky mouthfeel, saturated with bright flavors of dried cherries, boysenberries and black plums. A touch of thyme and cassis adds to the complexity. The wonderful texture lingers gracefully and begs you to take another sip. - Jean-François Pellet, Winemaker The 2003 Vintage Although the Walla Walla Valley’s 2003 growing season was one of the warmest and driest in the past decade, our estate-vineyard grapes thrived. During the long, warm days, the grapes savored the sun and ripened to ideal sugar levels. Cool nights locked in acid levels, creating well-balanced flavors. Our wines from this vintage are expressive and concentrated with silky tannins.
