New favorite cheese: Purple Haze

Anyone who knows me knows that I truly love good cheese . . . to the point that I am one of two people on all of LiveJournal to include Vacherin Mont d'Or in their Interests list.

I'm a big fan of Cypress Grove's award-winning Humboldt Fog, but they may have surpassed themselves with their Purple Haze chevre, a tangy soft goat cheese, dusted with lavender buds and wild harvested fennel pollen. Amazing stuff. I wasn't as taken with the Sauvignon Blanc we had it with, but the cheese was remarkable. Highly recommended, if you get the chance to try it. We found it at the Fresh Market nearest us.

Special to quandry: I know I still need to (and definitely want to) do a wine write-up for you. I just never seem to have pen and paper handy when I'm drinking, and I'd prefer to write my impressions while I'm consuming it. The Belle Vallee Pinot Noir we had recently was definitely worth a mention - yummy peppery notes accenting really big fruit with a long finish.

Hehehehe, I've been slack lately too! So don't feel too bad.

Which reminds me, I had a 1999 Australian semillion, a pretty good one that I had bought earlier in the day, and I can't remember a damn thing about it because I opened the bottle in our hotel room in Vegas when we finally returned after popskeeter asked me to marry him. Drank it out of a champagne flute too :)

*laughs* Darlin', that's about as good a reason as I can think of for not remembering the details of a wine, or anything else! I'm sure mumpish has spoken of Demosthenian, our college debate society. Members of that organization are not known for being short of words, but I was literally speechless, really speechless for the first time in my life, stammering "Uh, uh, uh" and just sort of nodding an affirmative when David proposed to me on the beach in the moonlight . . . :)

I am very happy for you both!
