Cabernet Sauvignon, ‘Lady Hawk – Horse Heaven Hills’, Andrew Januik
Lady Hawk, owned and operated by Judy and Paul Champoux in the Horse Heaven Hills AVA, is a very small parcel of land with less than 5 acres planted, all of which is Cabernet Sauvignon. Luckily there are no other wineries that receive grapes from this meticulously managed vineyard, thus leading to a truly one of a kind wine. This dark magenta wine’s nose is filled with beautiful bright notes of raspberry and mineral. The well-structured body is supple in the front and is brimming with cassis and spice box flavors throughout the palate. The long, textured finish is framed by strong tannins. Aged for 21 months in barrel, 55% new French oak. 242 cases produced.
