Rex Hill Pinot Noir Oregon Carabella Vineyard 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Mineral and rusty notes greet the nose followed by gently spicy nettle notes and fine raspberry and wild strawberry fruit, all topped with a hint of woodsmoke. This enters the mouth with a fine combination of elegant richness and vibrancy. The fruit is shaded towards the black end of the spectrum; lightly black cherry and black raspberry are underpinned by nice mineral notes and slightly savory tannins. A real mineral note on the back end drives onto the intense finish with layers of fresh berry fruit and subtle shavings of bitter chocolate with a hint of cinnamon spice on the finale. This throws a party in your mouth, the kind of Pinot a smokey salmon might love. 90pts

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.
