This extra special, extra aged Pleasant Ridge generally makes its appearance each year in the fall after being aged for a minimum of 12 months. At Uplands, cheese is only made for 9-10 weeks out of the year when the cows are out on pasture. As the cheese ages, the milky/grassy/nutty flavors that are present in younger wheels morph into intensely fruity, pineapple-y flavors with a dash of meat stock and barnyard thrown in for good measure. The texture of Pleasant Ridge Extra Aged is also unique - after 12 months, the wheels begin to show little flecks of tyrosine, the crystalline crunchy bits that practically pop on your tongue when you eat it.
