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.
Food Pairings for The Skinny Vine Thin Zinfandel
Not your traditional Chardonnay, this wine is light and crisp but not quite like a Pinot Grigio. Ok for the price nice for a warm or hot summer day. I gave it 2.5 only because it is not a chard or even an unoaked chard but its drinkable
Judging this one unfairly because I have a favourite already in this category, but surely deserves a respectable nod. Slightly tart, slightly dry, definitely zinfandel. Biggest issue I have is that it doesn't seem to have enough character to distinguish it from other Zins. If you're a Skinny Vine collector, surely keep this in the rack, but for me there is another.
External Reviews for The Skinny Vine Thin Zinfandel
Mild, with a complex aromas and flavors of cherry, watermelon and ripe citrus fruit.
The Red Blend presents a warm berry compote with a complimentary note of chocolate, highlighting the fruit and earth notes of the blend. It leads with soft blackberry fruit and transitions to plum and raspberry flavors with background notes of caramel and creme brulee. The mouthfeel is full and round with mild tannins that provide a supple texture and pleasing richness without weight.
A delicious blend of subtle ripe apricot and honeyed citrus aromas, plus a touch of vanilla and oak spice.
A red blend made primarily with Syrah, contains 100 calories in each 5-ounce serving, which is 15 percent less than other wines, according to the USDA reference comparison. The wine is described as fruit-forward with a definitive wine profile.
The White Blend offers a balance between fruity and floral, showcasing a bouquet of rose petal and freesia with vibrant stone and tropical fruit aromas. The off-dry style complements the subtle flavors of peach pie and guava, while richer notes of honey and candied orange peel round out the palate. Pleasing apricot and citrus flavors linger and the wine finishes with a pleasing, refreshing acidity.
The Skinny Vine California Thin Zin was carefully selected to exhibit the juicy berry characteristics that make this wine so beautifully aromatic and delicious. A slow fermentation allowed our winemaker to achieve the perfect level of sweetness, which is complemented by a mouthwatering acidity. The resulting wine is beautifully fruit-driven, clean and crisp for light and carefree moments. 089819543359
