Summit Lake Vineyards Zinfandel Port "Clair Riley Pirates Reserve" 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

Quite frankly, this is perhaps the best Zinfandel port ever. port lovers love it; non-port lovers are won over immediately. The fruit must hang weeks after harvest to produce the required sugar content. Weather conditions must be perfect. Subsequently, it is not produced every year. We suggest putting your name on the port list!

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.

The Pirate's Reserve port makes me want to drop anchor and relax with a glass as I watch the moon's reflection glimmering on the sea. A sweet finish to an exhausting day or a glorious meal!
