2Hawk Vineyard and Winery 2015 Ruby

Servings: 4

Chef: Mike Hite

Partner Organization: Alchemy Restaurant

Wine Pairing: 2015 Ruby

Our Port underwent a stylistic change in 2015 to become a ruby- or vintage-style wine. While monitoring this wine as it aged in barrel, we found the fresh blackberry, red plum, and baking spice aromas so compelling we decided to bottle it with only twenty-two months barrel aging. The palate is generous and round with surprising elegance for a wine of such structure. We highly suggest allowing this gem to slumber in your cellar for five to seven years before enjoying it.
