Central Point, Oregon
The blue depths of the national treasure for which this cheese is named are reflected in its complex, vibrant, and silky character. Crater Lake is more robust in style than many of our other Blue Cheeses. A favorite of Rogue Valley locals!
Appearance: Pale ivory, with blue veins of mold
Texture: Rich, creamy, and slightly crumbly
Taste: Sweet cream, pear, and blackberry, with a pronounced “blue” flavor
- Delicious when paired with dried pears and honey on a crumbly cornmeal cookie. Its powerful flavors also make this cheese an excellent one for crumbling on a salad or grilled vegetables.
- The bold, savory notes in this cheese complement wines with a touch of sweetness, such as a Late Harvest Syrah or Port Wine.
