Vineyards Planted in 1991, the 50-acre Hawks View Vineyard offers the ideal growing conditions for Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. The eastern-facing slope and Laurelwood soils, combined with dry farming and hand harvesting, allow for wines of great character and distinction.
Tasting Notes The wine has aromas of apricot and dried mango, ushering in flavors of almond and honeysuckle. The palate showcases refined texture and bright acidity.
What makes this wine special: Hawks View Vineyard is known for producing exceptional fruit. Hawks View’s three Pinot Gris blocks (grafted and self – rooted) were picked on three separate days and fermented individually, allowing for added complexity and acidity in the finished wine.
