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.

While the brand was named after the practice of toasting the barrel heads and staves during the coopering process, it may also provide a glimpse of the toasty flavors that 18 months of aging in American oak barrels (20% new wood) imparts. Also detected are notes of chocolate and coffee. The blending of 12% Petit Verdot provides rich tannins for excellent aging potential.

Aging in barrels made of wood that has been toasted gives the Toasted Head line of products from producer R.H. Phillips a unique flavor. Notes of blackberries and dried cherries lead the path and melt into a soft chocolate-covered espresso bean flavor with light leather and earthy undertones.

The latest incarnation of the famous, fire-breathing bear is what you'd expect: richly focused on its cassis and dark cherry flavors, with that hallmark creamy, mocha-scented oak wrapping the rich fruit in a velvety, fine-grained warmth.

A straightforward Cabernet, with good varietal character. Dry and balanced; shows blackberry, cassis and oak flavors, with a rough, briary finish that turns chocolaty.


Winemaker's Notes:

Elegant and aromatic, this wine features raspberry, cherry & rhubarb notes, ripe tannins, and a hint of vanilla, mocha and toasty notes from the barrel aging process. The Lake County fruit provides the backbone and structure of the wine, while Mendocino's Redwood Valley contributes perfumed notes of raspberry and blackberry. This wine is best paired with a fine steak, a casual burger, or a decadent chocolate dessert.
