Hawk and Horse makes an impressive Red Hills Cabernet Sauvignon so it's no surprise they would excel with a Port-style fortified wine made from their same, biodynamically farmed, mountain Cab Sauv grapes. Dark-cherry red in color and aroma with a leathery, cigar nose, this wine is super rich in texture, full of caramel and dark plum, finishing smooth and long. Very pleasant to drink, with the tannins nicely mellowed. - Viriginie Boone
