- 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.
Crater Lake Blue
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!

Simeon Cataluna –
Received the 6.5 oz wedge as part of the Brilliant Blue Sampler. Crater Lake Blue is very creamy and well-balanced, with a uniform layering of blue veins. Subtle hint of freshly cracked black pepper, and toasted pine nuts, which I LOVE! I would buy this again.
