Need some suggestions for wine/cheese pairings?

We're doing a "make mine Virginia Wine" tour and I want to take along some cheeses and meats to enjoy while stopping at the vineyards. Here's the wines we will be tasting (that I am aware of and preparing for...) as we are doing a private tasting at one of the vineyards..

Consensus- comprised of 40% Touriga, 33% Petite Verdot, 25% Malbec, and 2% Norton
Cabernet Franc
Norton (Native Va. Grape...has aromas of crushed berries and Indian spices. Fermentation and aging in stainless steel gives a fresh and clean palette, with good acidity and ripe chewy tannins, that leads to flavors of black cherry, plum, and hints of vanilla)

Any suggestions??
