Wine Pairings for Appetizer Cheese Board
by Dean and Deluca Cheese Expert Doug Berloager

Wine: Salus Staglin Family Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon
Cheese: Zamorano (Sheep’s Milk) (Spain)

Zamarano cheese is a sheep’s milk cheese made in the Castile-León region of Spain. This is a hard cheese which is typically aged about 6 months. The cheeses are turned often, and rubbed with olive oil, giving the cheese its characteristic dark color. This cheese owes its flavor character to the breeds of sheep predominant in the region (Churra and Catellana), the climate conditions (cold and humid) and its long aging in cellars.

Wine: 2005 Decoy of Duckhorn Napa Valley
