Echo Mountain Blue



August is National Goat Cheese Month, and in its honor we’ve brought back this delicious staff favorite – only available on our website!

Echo Mountain Blue’s montage of complex flavors come from blending cow and goat milk in the recipe. Its profile is rich, fruity, spicy, and tangy. It has a soft, spreadable texture with a silky smooth mouth feel and lingering finish. Extended cave-aging means this cheese is more potent than many of our other blue cheeses.

The goat milk used in this recipe comes from a herd that browses seasonally near the banks of the Rogue River very near to our Dairy Farm. These goats enjoy the same forage as do our cows, including native grasses, clover, and blackberry. This natural, pasture-based diet produces milk that expresses the “Flavor of the Rogue.”

You May Want To Add:

Appearance: Ivory paste with distinctive green-blue veins of mold

Texture: Semi-soft texture with distinct crunch from brushite crystals 

Taste: Bold, robust blue flavor with a bright, citrus finish from the tangy goat’s milk

Suggested Pairings:

  • For a cheese plate, serve simply with wine and full flavored charcuterie meat, such as Olympia Provisons Chorizo Rioja 
  • This blue needs a fruit forward red like a Zinfandel to match its delicate flavor or a Viognier with herbaceous, floral tones. Also try Cabernet Franc or a peppery Cabernet Sauvignon.
