Tasting Notes Cheese: 

Made in small batches in the mountains of Picos de Europa, this creamy blue cheese is aged in natural caves, before being wrapped in maple or chestnut leaves. It is well balanced in salt and penicillium, creating a powerful, creamy, spicy cheese that pairs perfectly with the aged Tempranilllo Dehesa La Granja from the same region. Enjoy with olives on a sun soaked patio or curled up in winter by a roaring fire.

Wine Pairing: 2009 Dehesa La Granja, 2015 Dolle Blauer Zweigelt Reserve, N.V. Paulett Trillians Sparkling Red, 2015 Bodegas Taron Crianza Rioja Alta.
