Jeremy’s Pick: Cowgirl Creamery’s Pierce Pt.

Jeremy’s pick for this week followed up on a pick that peeked a few weeks before so we won’t evaluate the triple cream that was overly ripe and needed to be re-evaluated. He suggested a Cowgirl Creamery Pierce Pt.

 

Here’s Cowgirl’s information:

PIERCE PT
Some of the best things in life are simply not available all the time. That’s the case with Cowgirl Creamery’s PIERCE PT, which is produced only in fall and winter. Made from organic whole milk from the Straus Family dairy, PIERCE PT is washed in a muscato wine and rolled in dried herbs from the Tomales Bay coastal region. The result is a delicious cheese – semi-firm yet creamy, complex yet never overpowering – that you’ll recall longingly when it’s out-of-season.

Here are my notes on this delectable seasonal cheese from California’s Point Reyes region:

Aroma
Sweet & herbaceous with a slight brie-like sharpness.

Flavor/Texture
Luxurious and buttery. I enjoyed eating rind and all. The herb goes nicely with the buttery ripe sides with a hint of ‘cheddariness’ in the center.

Well , I must say Jeremy nailed it again – no wonder he works in the cheese department. Go figure!

  1. I had this the other night and it was great! With the overripe reference, this is a shot in the dark, but a couple weeks back I had a Mt. Tam that I was looking forward to, but when I cut into it, it was WAY overripe, with no aromas but ammonia.
