Verite Winery:
The Vérité Estate is located in the foothills of the Mayacamas Mountain range at the southern tip of Sonoma County's Alexander Valley. Vérité's unique location, shared by only one other winery, is just north of the confluence of the Chalk Hill and Knights Valley appellations.
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.

Tasting Notes:

"A blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Cabernet Sauvignon, Le Désir represents the grace and opulence of the best St.-Emilion-style wines. A very dark to opaque ruby color is followed by medium forward aromas and an exhilarating combination of dark and red fruits featuring blackberry, cassis, cranberry, red plum, and pomegranate along with distinct gravelly notes and hints of black pepper, anise, graphite, and smoke. The wine is very concentrated on the palate with intense flavors of blackberry and dark raspberry combined with dark earth and leather. The firm tannins will soften with decanting, and the wine is incredibly light on its feet for its amazing density of color." - Pierre Seillan, Vigneron
