Cabrales (DO) - goat's milk soft blue cheese - 6 lb/2.8 kg, Spain. Queso Cabrales is a natural cheese made in the artisan tradition by rural dairy farmers. Cabrales is aged from two to six months in natural caves in the mountains nearby. In these caves, the relative humidity is 90% and the temperature varies between 45°F and 55°F. These conditions favor the development of penicillin molds, yielding veins of blue-greenish color. Unlike its cousins - Danish Bleu and French Camembert - the blue mold is not artificially injected, it occurs naturally. Cabrales is sharp and tangy. Like Gorgonzola and Roquefort, it is a famous blue cheese whose name is often copied by inferior wannabees. Contrary to popular belief, authentic Cabrales is wrapped in aluminum foil, not leaves. Serving suggestions: Toss a handful into your favorite Mediterranean salad. Makes a beautiful and flavorful addition to a tapas plate. Compliments: Goes well melted over meals or with salami. Approprate wines: Kronendal Ruby Port, Marques de Vitoria Rioja Gran Reserva, Quinta de Roriz Porto.
