Is It Spring Yet?

We've got a bunch of new products in the store this week.

For those of you who have been asking , we are pleased to announce the return of truffle honey, truffle oil and truffle salt. We spent a lot of time tasting truffle products and think we've got the best. Deeply aromatic infused products that are the truffliest you've ever tried.
We're also starting to bring in new cheeses. Pecorino from Prairie Fruits Farm, aged goat cheese from Andante Dairy in California and our featured cheese of the week, eight year cheddar from Widmer's Cheese Cellars in WI.

This cheddar has everything we love in an aged cheese. Texture is crumbly when sliced with those lovely little crunchies that come with a well aged cheese, but has a dense fudge like texture in the mouth. Rich and nutty this cheese is sure to become a favorite among customers and staff.

You're going to need a big wine to go with that explosive cheddar. We suggest the 2007 Picada from Argentina. This full-bodied red is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec and Pinot Noir. The end result is a big wine with soft tannins, plum flavors and just enough spice that is sure to please.

While our pairing won't make spring come any sooner, having a tasty hunk of cheese and glass of wine certainly helps bring some sunshine into an otherwise cold and grey February day.
