Winemaker's Notes:

Aromas of black cherry, berries and licorice spice introduce this fragrant, fruit driven Cabernet Sauvignon. In the mouth, bright cherry and blackberry fruit flavors intermingle with cassis, plum and white sage. This Cabernet has an inviting entry and firm tannins that hold the flavors.

Well balanced with a long finish, this wine would pair tastily with a hearty dish of braised beef shanks and a celery root mash.

About Hawk Crest:

Stag's Leap Wine Cellars has produced Hawk Crest wines since 1974 with an eye towards crafting approachable, fruit-forward wines of high quality and great value. Over the years the Hawk Crest winemaking team has carefully selected specific vineyards in some of California's most promising growing areas. Just 15 miles north of Napa Valley, Red Hill Lake County is the primary source of fruit for the well-structured, food-friendly Cabernet Sauvignon. The Santa Lucia Highlands and greater Monterey County are the source for the Chardonnay, and the richly textured Merlot is sourced from Paso Robles.
