Gold Hill leaves the creamery after a minimum of six months aging. It is firm, dry, and quite sweet, with aromas of toast and goat caramel and a saline quality. Montchevre Chevre in Blue (Wisconsin): Made by Montchevre, which was sold last year to Saputo, Chevre in Blue is one of the few goat's-milk blues made in this country. Produced from pasteurized milk from Midwest farms, the rindless 5-pound wheel is snow-white inside, moist and tender with light veining. The f lavor is tangy yet mellow and approachable, with no bite or bitterness. With your eyes closed, you might think it was feta. Twig Farm Tomme (Vermont): A raw-milk cylinder weighing just under two pounds and matured for three to four months, Tomme has a thick natural rind and a semifirm interior. Expect to find cave or damp-stone aromas mingled with caramel; the flavor can be a bit salty. The wheels are lightly pressed ini- tially and brushed occasionally as they age, but the philosophy here is "non-interventionist" cheesemaking to allow each batch to express the season and the place. Pairing Suggestions Help your customers complete their cheese course by partnering these aged goat cheeses with dried fruit, panforte or a dried fig and almond cake. A nutty dessert wine, such as oloroso sherry or an off-dry cider, would be a good complement. For a pre-dinner cheese board, keep the accompaniments savory— roasted Marcona almonds, buttery Lucques, or Picholine olives and grissini. Any one of these cheeses will make converts out of the most resolute goat cheese avoiders.
