Does Smokey and Blue work?

Bel Air, a super market here on the west coast, just introduced a new cheese to their gourmet cheese selection, Rouge River Smokey Blue Cheese. Sounded like an interesting combination so I had to try it. It was a little confusing to my taste buds to start with but they grew to appreciate it. It is medium on the "smoke" and has a nice balance to the "blue". This is a hard cheese to pair with wine. White? NO! Maybe a smokey Chateauneuef Du Pape? You be the judge...
