Point Reyes Original Blue

$24.99/LB
The Giacomini Family, third generation dairy farmers in West Marin, CA, have been making farmstead products since 1959. They converted their milk into cheese in 2000 and introduced Original Blue™, California’s iconic classic style blue cheese. Known for its extra creamy texture and bright milk flavors up front with a pepper pungency in the finish, Original Blue is great drizzled with honey, on a steak or melted into pasta.

Pairing Recommendations

Pour a glass of...

  • Cabernet Sauvignon

    Full-bodied with no shortage of flavor. This grape is grown in almost every climate, which means lots of diversity across bottles.

    Old World Cabernet: Earthy with aromas of leather, hay, and dark dried fruits. Sometimes a hint of eucalyptus or violet.
    Pair with: Cheese with flavor that can stand up to this big wine. Alpine style cheeses like Comte or Appenzeller and some sweeter blues like Bleu d’Auvergne would make a good match.

    New World Cabernet: Characterized by bold oaky flavors and high levels of tannins. These wines are about as full-bodied as you can get, very jammy with flavors of reduced fruit.
    Pair with: Sweet clothbound cheddar or a Grana style cheese like Parmigiano Reggiano or Podda Classico.
