    Interesting that it supposedly goes well with -- no surprise -- Merlot (or pinot noir or a Shiraz), but you chose zinfandel.

    I really like it, too. It's one of my favorites for an easy dinner with an apple and a fresh hot roll with butter (and a glass of wine, of course!)

    Just had to do a quality check on the piece in my fridge--yep, it's still good.

    I have another cheese from this company to try. It's an asiago rubbed with olive oil and rosemary. That gives me ideas for dinner...

    the merlot seems to be more for looks than taste. I must admit, I didn't get a wine component in the flavor. Maybe if I tried their straight BellaVitano I would. I'll be trying some of their other cheeses.

    Jason, I think it would go well with a good hoppy beer too.

    Why not pair it with zinfandel- it's America's wine.

    I remember in the 90s that UC Davis thought Zinfandel was actually a southern Italian grape called Primativo. Now I guess they found that Zinfandel and Primativo are actually a grape from Croatia the name of which I can't spell.
