Echo Mountain Blue by Rogue Creamery is a montage of rich flavors made from combining sustainable raw cow and goat milk. The flavor is clear, crisp, brilliant and complex in its subtle hint of goat’s milk. Brightly hued veins traverse the body of this cheese, infusing it with a bold, earthy flavor. It has a semi-soft texture with a silky smooth mouth feel and a tangy finish. Winner of 11 National & International Awards in the last five years. Next to Rogue River Blue, this is Rogue Creamery's second-most-honored cheese.
The goats browse seasonally near the banks of the Rogue River next to Rogue's cow dairy, sharing the same "Terroir" of rich grasses, clover, and Himalayan blackberry. Their natural and local feed and pasturing are designed to balance the goat’s diets and milk to provide the "Flavor of the Rogue". The specially designed dairy with unique milking practices and high quality standards are indicative of its flavor, texture and award winning style. For a cheese plate, serve simply with wine and full flavored wheat crackers; the ultimate stuffing for meat, poultry and vegetables; excellent with savory and ethnic foods. Stuff chicken breasts with Echo Mountain, shallots and spinach; stuff pork chops with Echo Mountain, sage and onions. This blue needs a fruit forward red like a Zinfandel to match its delicate flavor or a Viognier with herbaceous, floral tones. Also try Cabernet Franc or a peppery Cabernet Sauvignon.
