Friday Fun: A Perfect Pairing of Wine and Cheese!

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Napa Consultants DRE00893924

When we bought a cheese plate at Rusack winery it included this cheese pictured above.  It was the first time we had tasted it.  What is great about it is that when it is sliced, the blue (Stilton) crumbles onto the double Gloucester.  You get just the perfect amount of blue cheese taste with the Gloucester.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes:

From one of Santa Barbara County's great growing regions, the RUSACK 2015 Solomon Hills Pinot Noir captures some of this region’s classic characteristics. The bouquet opens with hints of violet while bold notes of black cherry and raspberry follow through on the palate. The sweet silky tannins make for a round and approachable wine that is also age worthy.

 

 

Since this is a boutique winery only 1250 cases produced.  If you can find it at your local wine store,  we highly recommend it.

What a life!  Wine tasting used to be free at winaries. I think there is a covering charge locally.

The wine looks wondeful but for me a little blue cheese goes a long way. I might like it this way.

Oh yum, what a wonderful pairing of tastes. We will look to see if we can find the cheese and the wine locally.

Sam Shueh when we left Napa it was free to the locals with ID.  And that included library wines.  Here if you buy a bottle they waive the tasting fee.

Joe Pryor exactly it helps those who are not very fond of blue.  It distributes it so to speak.  A

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD It may have found its way to WA.  I saw somewhere else recently.  The cheese is wonderful and we also had olives from their trees.  A

Of all the wines, I like a good Pinot Noir, Gamay Beaujolais, or Cabernet Sauvignon, best.  Put a good hunk of cheese along side it, and I'm pretty content.

Wine and cheese pairing is just about as good as it gets, Alexandra. Rusack winery sounds like the real deal.

Hi Ron and Alexandra- your description of the wine makes me want to pour a glass of it!!!  And I'm with Joe Pryor ...a little bit of blue cheese goes a long way with me as well. This cheese looks like a great way to have it.

Hello Alexandra and Ron - my knowledge of wine may be just a bit more than that of cheese.  Learning can be exciting and enjoyable. Cheers!
