Approx. 3 lb Wheel

Assa, which is the Miwok word for "woman," is a goat's milk wheel with a semi-firm texture. The cheese is washed in local wine as it ripens, enabling naturally-occuring bacteria to populate rind and give the cheese a pungent aroma. Underneath the rind, the paste itself is mildly floral, with subtle sweet flavors of caramel and nuts and a balanced saltiness.
