From the the prestigious Maggy Hawk vineyard near Navarro, CA this wine has a fresh, vibrant palate and flavors of dried cranberry and cherry.

Vintage Notes: 

The 2017 vintage began with significant rainfall prior to bloom, refilling the state’s reservoirs and ending California’s five-year drought. We saw a sudden spike in temperatures just prior to harvest, leading fruit to ripen quicker than anticipated. This sped up our harvest schedule, but due to our team’s vigilance, the fruit was still able to be picked at optimal ripeness. Temperatures then cooled back down by mid-September, allowing the remaining vineyards to complete ripening at an ideal pace. The rest of harvest was finished as planned, with yields coming in at their typical levels.

Vineyard Notes: 

Named after the vineyard owner’s beloved horse, the Maggy Hawk vineyard is planted outside of the town of Navarro towards the northern border of Anderson Valley. This area is what’s known as the “deep-end” by the locals because of its proximity to the ocean and away from the more populous Booneville at the southern end. Mere miles from the Mendocino coastline, the vineyard enjoys prolonged fog cover during the mornings and evenings. The chilly nights help preserve the acidity in the grapes while the short yet intense sun exposure during the day allows for slow, optimal ripeness. Maggy Hawk is tucked away in the remote western hills and surrounded by centuries-old redwood trees.

Wine Profile: 

Aromas: Pomegranate, dried black cherry, pennyroyal, dried rose petal, earth

Palate: Medium weight on the palate and vibrantly fresh. Dried cranberry, cherry, dried tea leaves, sage
