Tasting Notes
Use & Pairing Suggestions
Not to play favorites, but the cheese that started it all holds a special place in our hearts.
Produced on our family farm since 2000, California’s classic style blue cheese is rindless, all-natural and gluten-free. The addictive flavor is bold with hints of sweet milk and a peppery finish.
  • Made from raw (non-pasteurized), rBST-free cows’ milk
  • Made with microbial (vegetarian) rennet
  • Aged 3.5 months
  • Gluten Free
  • Milky white in color with blue-green veins throughout
  • Ultra-creamy texture with medium-strong blue mold flavor
  • Sweet, fresh milk with a medium-to-strong punch of blue flavor
Original Blue is great as a stand-alone table cheese, for topping salads, melting onto burgers and steak, mixing into pasta or risotto, incorporating into scrambled eggs and mashed potatoes, and so much more.
Pair with red wine like Cabernet and Zinfandel, where the fruit forward berry flavors and a hint of spicy chocolate play nicely with the peppery finish of the cheese. Pair with malt-centric beers such as Lagunitas Brewing Company's Hairy Eyeball and Imperial Stout. Last but certainly not least, Original Blue and vintage port are outstanding together!

When will my order ship/deliver?

The short answer is whenever you want! 
During the checkout process, you will have the option to select a requested delivery date*, Tuesday – Friday, up to 60 days in the future. This is perfect for shopping ahead of time for holidays, birthdays, or special occasions. 
 
Orders ship via Fed Ex Overnight, one day before your requested delivery date.
Most orders arrive on the target date, but sometimes it takes an extra day to arrive due to transit delays. If you're planning a party, choose a day or two early to
be safe. 
 
If you don’t specify a   requested delivery date, we will ship your order as soon as
possible. (Orders received after 12noon typically ship the following business day
but may take up 5 business days based on when the order is placed and our current
shipping volume.)


Important Notes for all Shipments: 
 - We ship via Fed Ex Overnight, Monday – Thursday with enough frozen gel ice to
last up to 2 days of transit time in case there are delays. (Note: if you order after

checking back.   
If placing 10 or more orders, please see corporate/bulk order form.
