Chocolate Lab

You gotta love a Lab! Enjoy a 1/2 lb wedge of our washed rind favorite, Chocolate Lab.  This cheese is made from pasteurized Jersey cow's milk in a patterned basket mold.  The wheels are washed every other day by hand with a brine solution to develop the classic intensity and pungent flavor of this style of cheese.  When ready, the wheels are coated with a mixture of sea salt and crushed cocoa nibs from French Broad Chocolates to impart a rich and rugged finish to the rind.  Chocolate Lab pairs well with a Chocolate Stout Beer or Malbec Wine.
