Winemaker's Notes:

A delicious wine rich in aromas and flavors of plumy fruit and savory notes of baked cinnamon and vanilla spice. The copious fruit flavors are supported by soft, supple tannins that yield slowly to a long finish. Enjoy this medium-bodied Merlot with lentil soup, eggplant Parmesan, or a Thai beef salad.

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.
