Black currant, tobacco, black tea, and Christmas spice are evident in the aroma and are also mirrored with the addition of a eucalyptus note in the mouth. The texture of the wine is dominated by rustic, cellar worthy tannin.
The Hawks View Wine Club is the real motivation behind the making of this big red blend. You asked and we answered with the Hawk Attack! We purchased some Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot fruit from three old vine sites in the Rouge Valley, made the wine in a traditional method, and allowed an elevage of 17 months in French oak. The resulting wine does not disappoint. - Winemaker, Don Crank
