From the Cheese Portraits series.

Winner of the "Best in Show, 2nd" at the American Cheese Society's annual conference in 2015, this Wisconsin treasure is from Roth Cheese.

The Private Reserve is made from a perfect batch of seasonal raw milk they get from local farms and is made in small batches. It's washed, brushed and flipped until it's reached optimal flavor in their Cellars, typically for six or more months. They claim to only release a batch when it is "perfectly, perfect" and that's believable when you taste it. It's no surprised it ranks among the best in show from over 1,700 cheeses judged.

Of course, I painted it inside the red-ribbon color they achieved!
