This rather unique wine is prepared using a blend of two lesser-known northern grape varietals, commonly found in the Eastern European regions, including Austria.
Zweigelt and Blaufrankisch may be difficult to pronounce correctly, but the resulting wine is easy to remember. Very fruit-forward in its presentation, this blend has aromatic qualities found in only a few wines A very fruit-forward red wine, rich in tannin, has a spicy character and pairs well with red meats, game, and specialty-cheese products, including Blue Cheese.
The commemorative label for this vintage, reflects the new home for our family heirloom, a 1960 Studebaker Hawk, which was originally purchased by Graydon’s father, Jack. It’s new home (or haven) is a fitting location for such a classic, amongst the quietness of the site and the natural birds of prey which also frequent the skies around the Winery.
Recent awards for Hawk’s Haven, include a Silver at the 2017 Savour NW Wine Competition.
