Wine, cheese, and chocolate--the gang’s all here! Created by Nat Belkov, a member of the Murray’s Marketing Team, these bite-sized delicacies are a mouthful of our favorite flavors. The smooth, subtle spice of one of our most famous blues blends seamlessly with the sea salt and dark chocolate, and gets a kick of rich, maple sweetness from the tawny port. One taste is enough to become a blue cheese convert, but we doubt you’ll want to have just one.
