red hawk (1/2 lb)
From Cowgirl Creamery in Point Reyes, California, this sensational washed rind stinker is beefy, to say the least.
Made of organic pasteurized cow milk & vegetarian rennet, the triple-creme brie interior paste is blanketed by an earthy red rind, reminiscent of a barnyard in both aroma & flavor. It's super with pears & toasted hazelnuts.
WINE: Syrah, Sauternes, Zinfandel, Pinot Gris, Fume Blanc
BEER: porter, stout
