Merlot and Original Heritage Cheese – Wine Down Box

Merlot and Original Heritage Cheese

April 2018 Pairing

2015 Rainy Daze Merlot
Wine Down Box - Buellton, CA

Original Plymouth Cheese
Plymouth Artisan Cheese - Plymouth, VT

Tartufo
Alle-Pia Fine Cured Meats - Atascadero, CA

Rich and comforting, our 2015 Rainy Daze Merlot evokes a dreamy scene of being curled up during a lazy day of springtime showers. It brings complexity and a touch of the exotic with its aromas of figs and cinnamon—alongside flavors of anise, cloves, and blackberry jam.

Alle Pia’s salami al tartufo is made with black summer truffles and white truffle oil. Not to worry—it is much more subtle than your typical truffle-infused delicacy. The soft richness and earthiness of this tartufo salami beautifully contrast the Merlot’s fruit flavors.

The Original Plymouth is the signature cheese from Plymouth Artisan Cheese. It is a full-bodied heritage cheese with a sharp flavor that is rounded out by notes of butter, fruits and nuts. Its simplicity makes it the perfect accompaniment for the Merlot and tartufo, as they are the true stars of this pairing.

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