Sterling Vineyards Chardonnay Napa Valley Reserve 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Sweeping aromas of toffee, nutmeg and clove settle on rich apple pie, baked pear and macerated Meyer lemon in the potent, polished profile of our 2008 Reserve Chardonnay. Citrus notes grace round Gala apples and poached pears on the entry, and then dive into toast and crème brûlée. Tropical fruit expands through the finish, touched by a hint of caramel and baking spice. With refined acidity and a clean palate, this is a wine to enjoy with food; try pork chops stuffed with apples and rosemary or steamed lobsters with drawn butter. Of course, a succulent turkey with this buttery Chardonnay always makes the perfect holiday centerpiece!

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.
