Right next door to the Muirfield Vineyard, but differing from Muirfield in that it is planted largely on rootstock, the Hawks View Pinot Noir always shows a bit riper and richer than its neighbor. In 2015 it ripened earlier than ever before, as we started picking in mid-September. A bit more dark fruit rather than red, more blackberries mixed with dried herbs and earth, this Pinot Noir should only develop more complexity with 2-3 years in the bottle
Juicy blackberry, raspberry, and currant flavors. There’s a slight briary, forest floor element to the mid-palate from the whole clusters, but the fruit re-emerges on the finish, which is carried by lively acidity and some light tannins.
