Lighter-bodied Zins can pair nicely with milder cheeses, such as mild Cheddar and Gouda. Fuller-bodied Zins can stand up to bolder cheeses, such as aged Gruyere and aged Cheddar. Because Zinfandel is sweet and fruity, it compliments aged, salty cheeses very well. Try some Parmigiano-Reggiano, Asiago, or Blue Cheeses with your next bottle of Zin!
