Murray's Cavemaster Reserve Cornelia

This item is currently unavailable.

$28.00/Lb


An homage to the original location of Murray's, Cornelia arrives just-formed from Point Reyes Farmstead. Pampered first in our sauna-like washed rind cave, then finished in our natural rind cave, she develops a sublimely buttery, rich paste with a roasted peanut finish. Cornelia is perfect on her own, but she totally digs the company of a medium-bodied red and bold charcuterie.

Pour a glass of...
  • Chianti

    Chianti is named for a region in Italy, and is actually made from a blend of grapes (mostly Sangiovese). This dry, medium-bodied wine has a distinct herbal quality (think rosemary and oregano) with flavors of dried plums and cherries.

    Pair with: An herb-crusted cheese like Hudson Flower or a Tuscan Pecorino.

  • Merlot

    A smooth and medium-bodied wine with a more rounded flavor than other reds. Dark fruits are present but with minimal tannins and no noticeable spice.

    Pair with: Earthy tommes like Toma Walser, mellow Fontina, or a lightly aged goat cheese like Leonora.


  • 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 Tomme de Savoie.

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