St Pat is a seasonal cheese made in sprint season using organic Jersey milk from John Taverna's Chileno Valley Dairy, produced by Cowgirl Creamery, based in Marin County, California, United States. During four weeks of ageing, the cheese develops a bloomy rind which is then wrapped in wild nettle leaves which imparts a smoky, artichoke flavour. The resultant product is a soft textured, rich creamy cheese which is full of flavour. The cheese is a gold medal winner of the North American Jersey Cheese Competition in 2009.
