We Started This New Tradition on Friday, March 1, 2013.
The idea of Wine & Cheese Friday came from the book “The Fun Book for Couples”. We wanted a nice way to wind down at the end of the week and thought this would be perfect!
Our first selection was Syrah and Gorgonzola. Maria suggested that we try to identify the prominent flavors and aromas from the wine. Maria noticed pepper and Neil thought berries.
After we sampled the cheese we felt the wine got spicier and more peppery. Our overall opinion of the Syrah was a mild wine that’s not too dry, or too much bite; easy to drink. The cheese was crumbly, very creamy; and a bit difficult to eat.
We enjoyed it and look forward to our next Wine & Cheese Friday!
