Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
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.

Toasty oak, sweet vanilla and jammy black currants fill the nose. This is overtly sweet smelling. A bit thick and very creamy in the mouth with high alcohol showing through and a very extracted, bitter, soft mid-palate that while full of anonymous black fruit shows no detail or elegance. 80pts

Winemaker's Notes:

ne of California's finest Sauvignons is consistently produced by Spottswoode Winery. With respect to the 1994 Cabernet Sauvignon, a beautifully scented nose of cassis, lead pencil, high quality new oak, and spice is followed by a wine with striking richness and balance. This dark ruby/purple-colored Cabernet possesses fabulous concentration, yet it never comes across as heavy or out of sync. A gloriously made, elegant yet powerfully flavored wine, it is accessible, yet capable of lasting for another 12-20 years. This sensational Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits the more complex, elegant side of California winemaking. Bravo!
