Wine Review: This ruby colored Pinot Noir from Maggy Hawk was very well received by the tasting panel. It opens with a fragrant black cherry and subtle oak bouquet with a hint of anise, menthol and black pepper. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and juicy. The flavor profile is a plum and mulberry blend with notes of vanilla oak. We also detected hints of black tea, minerality and cola towards the end. The finish is dry and the flavors linger and last for quite a while. The panel suggested pairing this Pinot with Colorado lamb chops or Peking duck. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: On the nose, aromas of cocoa, black cherry, maple, and nutmeg are expressed, giving way to the captivating flavors of Hawkster. Full-bodied and robust like its vineyard blocks, the palate showcases sandalwood, cassis and black licorice while asserting firm and mature tannins throughout the finish. Keeping true to his name, Hawkster will remain elegant and continue to evolve for years to come.
