When you think of the finest red wines in the world, you often are thinking of wines made with Cabernet Sauvignon. This grand grape is the basis for most of California's superb red wines as well as the predominant grape used for blending in France's famed Bourdeaux's. Flavor characteristics often include deep cherry, currant, mint and tobacco. Extra Aged Dutch Gouda: Gouda, when aged over 18 months, takes on a wonderful mix of savory and sweet, with a crystalline texture and butterscotch finish. Its big flavor and texture match up well with the characteristics of Cabernet. (7.5 oz) Piave Vecchio: This 12-month aged artisan cheese comes from Po Valley in northern Italy. It is hard with a natural rind and a sweet, salty, buttery taste. It is a wonderful cheese for snacking, and, like the Aged Gouda, has what it takes to stand up to a bold Cabernet. (7.5 oz) Smokey Blue: Rogue Creamery's "Oregon Blue" is the first blue cheese recipe made on the west coast and they thought it only fitting that this classic recipe become the first blue cheese ever smoked. The result is magic when paired with Cabernet! "Oregon Blue" is a classic Roquefort style blue cheese made with unpasteurized cow's milk that is cold smoked 16 hours with Oregon Hazelnut shells.
