Cambozola Black Label

$23.99/LB
Sure, you've heard of Cambozola. Brie-style pasteurized cow's milk cheese with the barest hint of blue veining - what's not to love? Well, until you've tried the Black Label, you haven't experienced the utmost in creamy blues. How's this one different? Well, for starters, the gray mold on the rind brings another layer of nuance to the flavor profile. A longer ripening time also enhances the taste and texture. A great introduction to blue cheese for those who might be intimidated by some of the more intense specimens on offer - try it with something bubbly and brut.

Pairing Recommendations

Pour a glass of...

  • Pinot Noir

    Lighter bodied and delicate. Old World style generally offers more funk, New World more fruit.

    Old World Pinot: Flavors of fresh cherries and raspberry balanced by a barnyard funk and high minerality. Sometimes has floral aromas, reminiscent of rose petal.
    Pair with: Almost anything! Works with funky Frenchies Epoisses and Langres, or mild natural rinds like St. Nectaire.

    New World Pinot: More sugary, with jam-like fruit, dried cherries, oak, and spice.
    Pair with: Full, fatty flavors. Alpines, cheddars, and Manchego.

     

  • Porters and Stouts

    Porter, Stout, Imperial Stout

    Welcome to the dark side of beer. Porters and Stouts are born of heavily roasted malted barley, which colors the beer and develops toasty flavors recalling chocolate, coffee, and chicory. Looks can be deceiving, though: dark doesn’t always mean strong. Porters and stouts can be incredibly light in body, or big boozy affairs that pour like syrup.
    Pair with: A mild, creamy blue like Cambozola Black.
