Winemaker's Notes:

This is textbook California Cabernet Sauvignon with dark fruit, red cherry and black pepper spice notes. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied with inviting blueberry pie and cocoa flavors. Enjoy this wine with grilled rib eye steak with herb butter, braised beef short ribs, or black-pepper-crusted ahi tuna.

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.
