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.

Bright purple. A wild, highly perfumed bouquet displays scents of candied dark fruits, sandalwood incense, violet and star anise, with smoke and floral overtones. Sappy, palate-staining cherry compote and cassis flavors show a suave blend of richness and verve, picking up cracked pepper and violet pastille nuances with air. Sneaky, mounting tannins give shape and grip to the strikingly long, sweet finish, with its echoing floral note.
The trick to a successful Zinfandel is to capture the grape’s briary, brambly rusticity and lend it elegance and balance. This wine succeeds at that task. It’s kind of a field blend with 25% of the wine made from what the winemaker calls “mixed blacks.” Whatever the varieties are, the wine is smooth, rich and delicious, showing complex wild berry, mocha, licorice, baking spice and sandalwood flavors. Should easily hold its own over the next 10 years.
Loaded with personality, this is dense and brooding, offering briary wild berry and tar aromas, with concentrated flavors of black raspberry, cracked pepper and smoky herb. Finishes on a dry, tannic note. Best from 2015 through 2021.
Tasting Notes - Dark and spicy, this wine Red currant, raspberry, coffee, tobacco, black pepper, and an underlying minerality. You ll notice an array of scents and flavors in this wine; most notably mulberry and blackberry, followed by a strikingly pure, focused finish.
