An ancient raw sheep milk cheese from Navarra in the Basque territory near the border of France. Pressed, aged paste develops a fuller, more gamey flavor than the bordering Manchego, which it is often (mistakenly) likened to. Buff tan to butter yellow in color, the hard paste develops into a slightly grainy consistency. Herbaceous and grassy notes underscore a lightly gamy, buttery flavor, with unmistakable sheepiness in the mix. The more it ages, the more that tanginess takes on the taste of sweet, floral flavors.
