ESTERO GOLD RESERVE  made by Valley Ford Cheese Co (Valley Ford, CA) – Estero Gold Reserve results from special batches of Valley Ford’s popular Estero Gold, held in the aging room and cared for until they reach a minimum of 16 months. As the cheese goes through this lengthier aging process, it develops more concentrated flavor, as well as firmer and dryer texture, bringing it more in line with cheeses like Parmigiano Reggiano. It is an excellent cheese for grating and goes amazingly well with a glass of fruit-forward red wine. Case 1/9#
