Rogue River Blue, out of Oregon, was previously the most celebrated cheese of the United States. Now, it’s the most celebrated cheese in the WORLD, announced by the World Cheese Awards, and we are proud to carry this best in class cheese while supplies last in The DLM Cheese Shop.
Rogue River Blue is a seasonal treasure of the winter holidays. Made in very limited quantities by Rogue Creamery out of Oregon and released each year during the fall, this decadent blue brings happiness to its fans for a few glorious months. Handcrafted using organic cow’s milk, Rogue River Blue is cave-aged for 9 to 11 months before it is delicately wrapped in pear-brandy-soaked Syrah grape leaves from the Rogue Valley. Don’t think this beautiful presentation is just for appearances, either! This striking gift-wrap also provides a stunning and transformative flavor profile.
You can expect the Rogue River blue to provide an intoxicating array of flavors that include pear, clove, blackberry, vanilla, hazelnut, cocoa, and even a touch of bacon. (I mean, who doesn’t love bacon nowadays?)
So how does one enjoy the best cheese in the world?
You can savor it after dinner with a touch of port or make it the center of an epic cheese plate. Generally blue cheeses pair best with bold reds, later harvest whites, or your favorite port. If beers are more your style, look for something malty and bold such as a stout, porter, or a barley wine. Whatever you choose, make sure it has some muscle because this beauty comes with a punch!
Look for this award-winning cheese in The DLM Cheese Shop while supplies last.
