Wine and cheese party - need pairings

Having a wine and cheese night in February, looking for ideas. Thinking 4 pairings, three red to include a Pinot Noir and 1white. Whole foods will probably be my cheese source.

  1. Even if the idea sounds wrong to you, pair at least one cheese with a dessert wine. Regardless how sharp or strong the cheese is, the wine will not be overpowered. If your W(t)F sells wine one they usually have is a Pedro Ximinez sherry, quite sweet and one of best from Lustau. You will open a new world for yourself if you are not familiar with this type of pairing.
