Cheese Cupid Pairing: 2006 Tamarack Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon


by Cheese Cupid


This week’s Wisconsin Cheese Cupid Pairing of the Week is a Tamarack Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon.

This vintage is a powerful and full-bodied cab with flavors of cinnamon, blackberry, and chocolate, aged in French oak barrels for two years.

This complex cab pairs well with Roth Käse Bleu Affinée, Roth Käse Grand Cru Gruyère, and Sartori Reserve Basil & Olive Oil Asiago.

Roth Käse Bleu Affinée is made from select wheels of Buttermilk Blue Cheese that are aged for six months, which makes the cheese more dense and peppery. Enjoy this cab alongside Gnocci with Blue Cheese and Wild Mushrooms.

Roth Käse Grand Cru Gruyère Surchoix is made by aging Grand Cru for nine months. It is a firm cheese with complex flavors of caramel and mushroom. Pair a glass of Tamarack Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon with this delicious Gran Cru Gruyère recipe.

Sartori Reserve Basil & Olive Oil Asiago is hand-rubbed with basil and olive oil, and provides an elegant twist on a classic Italian cheese. Satori Foods has been a Wisconsin cheesemaker since 1939 and is currently under its third generation of family ownership. Indulge in Eggplant Caponata Barocco with Sartori Reserve Basil & Olive Oil Asiago, and a glass of Tamarack Cab tonight.
