Murray's Cavemaster Reserve Cornelia
An homage to the original location of Murray's, Cornelia arrives just-formed from Point Reyes Farmstead. Pampered first in our sauna-like washed rind cave, then finished in our natural rind cave, she develops a sublimely buttery, rich paste with a roasted peanut finish. Cornelia is perfect on her own, but she totally digs the company of a medium-bodied red and bold charcuterie.
Just the Facts
ChiantiChianti is named for a region in Italy, and is actually made from a blend of grapes (mostly Sangiovese). This dry, medium-bodied wine has a distinct herbal quality (think rosemary and oregano) with flavors of dried plums and cherries.
MerlotA smooth and medium-bodied wine with a more rounded flavor than other reds. Dark fruits are present but with minimal tannins and no noticeable spice.
Pinot NoirLighter bodied and delicate. Old World style generally offers more funk, New World more fruit.
Old World Pinot: Flavors of fresh cherries and raspberry balanced by a barnyard funk and high minerality. Sometimes has floral aromas, reminiscent of rose petal.
Pair with: Almost anything! Works with funky Frenchies Epoisses and Langres, or mild natural rinds like Tomme de Savoie.
