Cheese for Wine that Will not Make You Gag

February 26, 2008

I’m having a dinner party later this week and I have some wine questions about what would be the best cheese for wine. I’ll be serving Merlot, thanks your help!! - Jackie in Raleigh, NC

So you want something that’s not going to leave a bad taste in your guest’s mouth huh? You know, being the Wine Virgin I understand the dilemma that you’re in. I used to hate it when I would try something new and it wouldn’t go well with the taste that was already in my mouth. This would usually make me gag.

So I know you want to do all which is in your power to make sure that everything that touches the palate of your guest’s mouth sends nothing but pure excitement trickling down their throats, leaving them in wanton anticipation of what will happen next. As well you should, because I heard recently that a highly acclaimed Democrat was actually leaving the party due to the fact that the leader at the time had left a bad taste in her mouth.

Anyway you try to shoot it, if the flavors aren’t compatible you are going to find yourself with that weird feeling of “Oh no, what have I done?” as you look around and see the uncomfortable expressions on everyone’s face.

So here are the best Merlot cheese choices. Try Merlot with younger wash rind cow’s milk cheeses and many of the Alpine-style cow’s milk cheeses. As well as with sheep’s milk cheese. But remember, the full flavor of Merlot grapes does not pair well with goat’s milk cheeses. If you like to take risks in the mouths of others then try Merlot wine with blue cheese… at your own peril of course.
