Dried Hibiscus, Crushed Rose Petal, Christmas Spice
Planted in 1991, the 50-acre Hawks View Vineyard offers the ideal growing conditions for Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. The eastern-facing slope and Laurelwood soils, combined with dry farming and hand harvesting, allow for wines of great character and distinction.
"A very bright mix of red fruit and floral notes are apparent right away on the nose. An intensification of the strawberry and hibiscus meet a pleasant vanilla undercurrent on the palette. Moments after the wine leaves your mouth, you'll find a a fine-grain, silky tannin and an ethereal reprise of the fruit and spice array. The concentrated fruit is balanced by a complimentary acidity, creating a consummately food friendly wine. This wine is a tribute to the founder of the winery, Jack Kemp--a wine as beautiful and well crafted as the winery itself." - Winemaker, Don Crank III
