Wine and Cheese Matchups.... Cabernet Sauvignon Top Tasting Results

Chicago Mike | Jun 28, 2004 12:27 AM

Recently participated in an extremely extensive tasting of Wine and Cheese.... 8 varietals in all were sampled against over 45 cheeses... this took days. Name a cheese between Appenzeller and Zamarano and it was probably part of this tasting.

Top-rated cheeses which "made the cut" were re-tasted in a second round.

Survivors and thrivers after two rounds vs. Cabernet Sauvignon are:

VERY TOP TIER: Parmesan Reggiano (very rare 9 score), and Provolone (8.5)

2nd TIER (all outstanding at 8.00): Aged Cheddar (4 year old), plain Chevre Goat Cheese, young Gouda,

3rd TIER, (very good at 7.50): Goucester Double, Aged Gouda, Morbier
