Alexander Valley Hawkeye Mountain
Sourced from the ridge along the westward face of the Mayacamas Mountains, the vineyards are perched high above the valley floor. Fog strains to reach the chilled top of the vineyard area, resulting in large temperature swings daily which are only tempered by the constant winds driven by the Pacific Ocean. The vines are grown on steep, terraced hillsides comprised of shallow, rocky and gravelly loam with iron-based, volcanic origins. The resulting profile of the Cabernet Sauvignon is elegantly muscular with chewy, soft tannins.
