We have a few sizes and brands to choose from with flavors like chocolate, ginger with chocolate, lemon, and classic. Hurry, supplies are running low!
Ubriacone Pinot Rose Rose fanatics, meet your new favorite cheese. This semi-firm cheese has a light fruity aroma. It retains the flavors of the wine without that sharp alcoholic bite present in some wine soaked cheeses. The blush colored rind is topped with dried rose petals; it is “almost” too pretty to eat. $26.99/lb
Tome Chabrin A Basque cheese supposedly 3,800 years old, this recipe has certainly withstood the test of time. The semi-firm goat’s milk cheese is sweet and nutty, with a mild goaty taste and just a hint of tartness. $29.00/lb
Beppie Pikant Winner of the Gold Award at the 2019 International Cheese Conference, this organic sheep’s milk gouda is rich, creamy, spicy-sweet, and mouth-watering. Aged for 7 months. $32.00/lb
Wine of the Week
Chateau Braniare-Ducru ’10
“(70% cabernet sauvignon, 23.5% merlot, 2.5% cabernet franc, and 4% petit verdot; 3.53 pH; 13.8% alcohol): Deep ruby. Sexy aromas of balsamic red cherry, blackcurrant, cinnamon, vanilla and minerals, lifted by captivating nuances of red rose and violet. Then incredibly pure, fresh and suave in the mouth, with lush, very refined flavors of fresh red berries, minerals and sweet spices. Deep and very concentrated on the seamless, luscious, impressively long finish. Great wine: this strikes me as being one of the four or five best wines ever made at the estate, even better than the 2009, and I probably underrated it at the Primeurs, when I scored it “only” 90-93. Harvested between September 27 and October 14.”
