Day 901 : Great right now

Are you looking for a cheese that is just absolutely excellent right now? Well then head to Murray's and ask for the Testun di Capra!

Testun di Capra is a washed rind goat's milk cheese hailing from Piedmonte. A large format cheese that is aged for anywhere between four months and two years, it is absolutely perfect with a glass of Channing Daughters Rosso Fresco. The 2008 Rosso Fresco is composed of 58% merlot, 28% Syrah, 10% Petit Verdot and 4% Dornfelder grapes. Tangy, bright, grassy, citrusy, milky and briny, yet fabulously earthy with a nice farmsteady kick this cheese is perfect with the medium bodied, earthy and slightly spicy yet jammy red fruit notes of this silky smooth North Fork red blend.

A perfect early Fall pairing!
