Cypress Grove’s signature offering, Humboldt Fog is an elegant, soft, surface-ripened goat milk cheese. The texture is creamy and luscious with a subtle tangy flavor. A delicate ribbon of edible vegetable ash along its center gives it a distinctive, cake-like appearance.

The perfect mixture of lavender and fennel pollen gives this cheese a sweet flavor that plays off the acidity in the cheese for a delightful complement.
La Crema Carneros Chardonnay. Other recommended wine styles are Cava, Gewürztraminer (dry), Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc (dry), Pinot Noir (young), and rosé.
Truffle complements velvety ripened goat cheese for an intensely flavored and sophisticated flavor. This cheese takes on different characters as it ages. A young Truffle Tremor is firm and white, with a mild creamy texture and floral aroma. A mature version is more complex, with a marbled rind, a gooey ripeness and tanginess that complements the earthy truffles.
La Crema Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir. Other recommended wine styles differ based on the ripeness of the cheese. Young Truffle Tremor pairs best with unoaked, slightly sweet white wines such as Vouvray and Sauvignon Blanc. Ripe ones pair with Zinfandel, Pinot Noir, and mature ones match heavy-bodied wines such as port, Sherry, Sauternes, big/full Cabernet and Zinfandels, demi-sec sparkling wine.
