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 St. Francis Sonoma Chardonnay
This is quite aromatic with classic notes of pineapple, toasty oak, ripe pear and sweet cream on the nose. This enters the mouth with a nice bright aspect, and while the mid-palate turns a bit creamy the vibrant acidity keeps the wine lively on the palate. It's got plenty of freshness in a style that highlight the ripe fruit character, in this case bright pineapple and citrus fruits with a hint of green apple. The oak fades into the fruit nicely on the backend and allows for a fresh finish of good length with the integrated oak just framing the slightly creamy, vanilla tinged fruit. This is not particularly complex but is surprisingly fun to drink! 89pts

St. Francis Sonoma Chardonnay 2008, smooth, smooth, smooth
Wine Enthusiast Review Rated 89 EDITORS CHOICE The dryness and minerality of this wine, combined with its clean, brisk elegance, make it a very nice partner for shellfish. The flavors are lemons, limes, and ripe, crisp white peaches. Wine Tasting Notes Fruit and pear aromas are offset on the palate by hints of oak and vanilla. Medium- to full-bodied, this Chardonnay has ripe fruit flavors, crisp acid in the mouth and a rich, lingering finish.
With aromas of honey, white blossoms, candied ginger and crushed rocks, this elegant, small-production Chardonnay displays layers of complexity. On the palate, it combines flavors of orange marmalade and Asian pear with creamy salted caramel and crisp apple. We never shy away from a challenge, and Mother Nature put us to the test in 2008. It was a year of extremes with frost, fluctuating temperatures and strong winds visiting us the first half of the year. Luckily, July and August brought relief, with two months of warm, dry weather. Harvest arrived early due to a heat spike in August, which pushed the fruit to full ripeness. In the end we had smaller yields, but extraordinary flavors and complexity.
