PLEASANT RIDGE RESERVE made by Uplands Cheese, Inc. (Dodgeville, WI)– Firm cheese made from raw cow’s milk. Made only on the spring and summer when the cows are on fresh pasture, it has the style and tradition of French mountain cheeses. It is rich and hearty, with complex layers of caramel and an intriguing sour cherry finish. The aroma is bold and fruity with an almost meaty bite. The texture is similar to a Comte, yet smoother and slightly more dense.
