Rogue River Blue 2014 Limited Inventory..

Rogue River blue cheese is wrapped in grape leaves that have been macerated in pear brandy. Its forward, well-aged flavor tastes of brandy, fruit and burnt cream. A creamy, crunchy-smooth texture conjures specks of rock candy dissolving like divinity. The antique linen-hued paste features random tôile-styled patterns of green blue veins and the rind is gracefully imprinted by its grape leaf wrapping. The flavors of our signature terroir include hints of sweet pine, wild ripened berries, hazelnuts, morels and pears.

This unique artisan blue cheese reflects a deep connection to the land and artisanship. Taking a cue from centuries-old Basque and Provencal techniques (which featured brandy-soaked chestnut leaves), these rounds are lovingly hand-wrapped in local Carpenter Hill Vineyard Syrah leaves that have been macerated in Clear Creek Pear Brandy. Rogue River blue is made during the autumnal equinox and before the winter solstice from Brown Swiss and Holstein cow’s milk, certified sustainable by Food Alliance. The cows graze in 1250 foot elevation pastures bordering Rogue River, where they eat a variety of pasture and native grasses, hop clover, wild herbs, Himalayan blackberries and wild flowers, supplemented with grass hay, alfalfa and grain off the ranch.

5 stars title= Rogue River Blue is Fantastic, 31st Jan 2013

Reviewer: Cindi Bartels

I first tried Rogue River Blue 2 years ago. It is so creamy, nutty and "BLUE" that it almost made my knees buckle! I would compare it to eating a blue-cheese-pot-de-creme. The wonderful taste lingers in the mouth long after eating it. One of my favorite ways to eat Rogue River Blue is to have small bits of it along side slices of ripe D'Anjou Pear. Thank you for making this fantastic cheese!

5 stars title= To Die For!!!, 14th Oct 2012

Reviewer: Linda DeMent

My friend and I just tasted this at New Seasons the other day... YUMMMMMM!!! The cheese monger recommended it as his favorite and 2 other nearby workers quickly nodded their heads in agreement! We tasted, WE LOVED! Nutty, rich, wild AND refined - we both had to have it! At $36 at lb I had to settle for a small-size wedge, happily. This is one treasure I'll repeat as often as my pennies and it's availability allow!!

5 stars title= Unbelievable, 8th Dec 2012

Reviewer: Richard Schwartz

I can't believe that this cheese has not yet received a review, but then again, how can one review the best Blue Cheese in the world? It just honestly speaks for itself. It is not only a classy blue, but scrumptious, vibrant, well-rounded, beautiful, and melodic. Yes, as a professional musician, I experience this cheese in tones of grapes, spices, grasses, plump berries, fruits, and earthiness. There is really no way to accurately describe this cheese other than it being a completely organic connection with a tradition that goes back hundreds of years. It is not just a cheese, it is an experience to be cherished for a long time after the indescribable morsel has disappeared from ones plate. Rick S.

5 stars title= Never had anything like this before, 15th Oct 2013

Reviewer: Kevin Danker

I purchased a small amount of this Blue Cheese at Costco and I have to get down there and buy more before it is gone. I have NEVER tasted anything quite like this before. The flavor and the texture is just out of this world.
