Cypress Grove Humboldt Fog
Perhaps the most recognizable American original cheese, this is Humboldt Fog with a cave-aged twist. Handmade at Cypress Grove's Northern California creamery from local goat's milk and lightly aged, Humboldt Fog then spends the remainder of its days in comfort within our very own aging caves with its very own fog created by our special humidity system, to ensure that the paste maintains its fudgy texture and tangy flavor, the creamline develops into unctuous bliss, and the rind is paper-thin and brimming with minerality. You'll know it's the Fog by the characteristic line of ash running through the center- creamery founder Mary Keehn's nod to the French classic Morbier- and by its birthday-cake-like shape, and you'll know it's cave-aged Fog by the way you keep coming back for more. Raise a glass of bubbly and toast the U S of A with a California sparkling.
