Video: Cabernet Sauvignon cheese pairings at winery tastings

As part of our first Viewers Choice Video Contest, Cortney from Los Angeles requested a video about how we select the best artisanal cheeses for pairing with Jordan Cabernet Sauvignons during our daily tours and tastings. In this video, Executive Chef Todd Knoll discusses his wine-and-cheese-pairing philosophy, as well as why cow’s milk cheeses pair best with Cabernet Sauvignon, how triple-cream cheeses interact with tannin in young Cabernets and how salts in more complex cheddar cheeses draw out the fruit flavors in older Cabernets.
Thanks again to Cortney, host of The Cort Report, for the video suggestion.
