Quickfire Top Chef Napa Cabernet 2009
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.
Editorial Reviews for Quickfire Top Chef Napa Cabernet
Tight and low on the nose with subtle aromas of milk chocolate and dried herbs adding detail to the vanilla and sweet black cherry core on the nose. The oak is well used here but does lend a notable baking spice quality, toasty and sweet to the nose. Rather cool and focused in the mouth, deep with fine acids and polished tannins supporting subtle blueberry and blackberry fruit on the palate. There’s a hint of herbaceousness that keeps this fresh and structurally this is rather crisp and focused with good length to the clear and bright blackberry black cherry toned finish. This is what you should buy in a steak house. 92pts
