Today's vineyard tour (a dissertation on eutypa) and wine/cheese tasting for Women for WineSense Grand Event attendees provided more insight into what works and what doesn't (see post of 2/12/12). Once again, Parmigiano reggiano got mixed results. The big winners were Midnight Moon, an aged goat cheese, and Cabot clothbound cheddar (cow). The ringer, Brie Nangis, didn't fool anyone: though tasty, it was too soft and creamy to work well with the Sangiovese. This lively group offered plenty of suggestions for future research: Humboldt Fog, Cowgirl Creamery's St. Pat and Pierce Point, Papato (whole peppercorns!), aged Gouda and Mimolette. We may be accepting applications for the next research tasting, and asking for a government subsidy -- good cheese is expensive! A highlight of the afternoon was a detailed accounting by John Rodeno of how he made the 2009 Sangiovese without benefit of modern equipment.
