Winemaker’s Notes:
The mission with this wine has been, and will always be to produce an elegant, aromatic version of what is normally a heavy-bodied variety used to add structure in blending. With that said, you will need to pair this wine with one of two things. First, an equally heavy meal such as spicy ratatouille or roasted beef tenderloin with mushrooms and red wine sauce. Second, let this wine be your fireside companion, with or without a “third wheel!”

Ageing Potential:
Now – 2026+

Additional Notes:
Formerly called “Dark Horse,” the name “Lost Hawk” refers to this variety being somewhat of an aggressive outlier. By harvesting at the correct time, and not over-extracting in the winery, I feel as if we accomplished our goal in making a wine that is both drinkable when young, but benefits from maturity in the cellar. If consuming within the next couple years, I would highly recommend aerating this wine for 1-2 hours before enjoying.
