Consider Bardwell Farm Rupert
Rupert may sound like the name of the nerdy guy in your AP physics class, and this is one serious cheese, but the name comes from one of VT's oldest towns. Made by Consider Bardwell and aged for at least 6 months, this raw cow, golden-hued beaut' is chock full of huge Alpine flavor: deep, sweet, and butterscotchy, but leavened with lovely tropical fruit flavors. Rupert's perfection is maintained in Murray's caves, where regular moistening keep the lovely smear-ripened rind at peak. Celebrate the accomplishment with a glass of Merlot.
