Cuvee Red Wine and Cheese Pairing – Wine Down Box

Cuvee Red Wine and Cheese Pairing

January 2017 Pairing

2014 Cuvee Red Wine
Mastro Scheidt Family Cellars - Healdsburg, CA

Don’t let the screw cap fool you. Winemaker David Scheidt takes an elegant and intense approach, while also bearing appropriate restraint. David has always approached making the Cuvee with a sense of early drinkability. With the ability to source and blend from multiple Sonoma County appellations, early drinkability is much easier to accomplish. Petit Verdot leads this blend with vibrant color and balanced tannin. Sangiovese and Merlot add acidity and bright fruit to make this an elegant and intense wine.

Lionza Cheese
Fiscalini Cheese Company - Modesto, CA

Lionza, a Swiss style cheese, is named after the tiny village high in the Swiss Alps that the Fiscalinis called home for more than 300 years. The same traditional steps are used today that were developed generations ago by Lionza ancestors. It is lightly straw colored and has a thin natural rind, a sweet milk caramel-like flavor, an enchanting aroma, and a semi-soft texture.

Saucisson Sec
Olympia Provisions - Portland, OR

Saucisson Sec is a traditional French salami flavored with garlic & black pepper. As this is Olympia Provisions’ most popular French-style salami, it proves the old adage, “sec sells”.

*Each pairing includes a delicious bag of artisan Nita Crisp wheat bread crackers.
