Shooting Star Zinfandel Mendocino County 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.
Jammy blackberry flavors.
I hadn't heard of the wine when I decided to try it, was a little nervous that it wouldn't be great since the price was $13 at the Wine Bistro (Columbus OH). It was very well rounded no spikey notes, deep, plush, but not so smooth as to be "wimpy". Nice dark plum, berry fruit on top of moderate woody, earthiness. I considered it a "find".
