Red Cloud

Red Cloud is a semi-firm, raw goat's milk cheese with a washed rind. It is aged for at least 60 days, during which it develops pungent, barnyard aromas and notes of toasted nuts and freshly cut grass. The wheels exhibit a sticky, slightly gritty red rind beneath which lies a firm, creamy paste with a goaty kick.

Serve with fruits or dried fruits such as apricots, figs, plums, or muscatels. A floral IPA, sparkling wine, or crisp white such as Pinot Gris pairs well with this cheese.

Red Cloud has won many awards; the most notable ones were at the American Cheese Society 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2012, 2013 competition and World Cheese Awards in 2008.
