Since this is a set up (composition) you could try to "arrange" your items a little bit better.
The red background does NOT help the red wine on your glass to show properly.
You should use a white background.
All so the shallow DOF (depth of field) makes the viewer focus on the cheese & not on both of the items.You could use a higher f number to have the maximum DOF.
A wider frame so you could include more of the dish & cheese would be good (it's tooo tight the way it is now).

Thanks, You are most likely right, but this is the effect I was after. But I will consider your suggestions for the next shot. I do appreciate your comments.

Although karaflazz mentions some nice options, I do like this version. For me no problem that the focus is on the cheese, the glass shape and color gives enough indication that we deal with wine. The red background is also fine, with the blurry glass it almost becomes one, but still enough to see what's what and gives the photo something extra to the cheese (like cheese with wine mood, dunno how to explain). Also the close framing with left the wine and right the cheese works well. maaaaybe the front part could do with some more highlights so it repeats with the backparts (light reflection in the glass), but that would be it imo. Good luck!

I actually like this a lot. The darker burgundy is dark enough against the background along with the white speckles from the light.
