2021 Like a Hawk
Since 2012, the Hill Family has been creating a unique blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah known for its punch and vigor. The Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon lots are always a treat to blend, and eventually we find the place where this “Team of Rivals” fits together better than each could show separately. In 2021, because of the long drought and hold-over effects from 2020, the yields were small, and tannins were high. Warm temperatures in August and early September brought grapes rushing into the winery. This is a big elegant energetic wine, with its well-known color and density, and it is always great to see Landon on the label representing the next generation of family farmers. The 2021 Like a Hawk has bold aromas of black cherry, cassis, vanilla and elderberry. The palate is big and intense, with flavors of cherry, plum and blueberry. The rich texture blends the flavors and alcohol together for a powerful finish.
