Hawk and Horse Vineyard “Latigo” Dessert Wine 2011


A luxurious port style dessert wine made from organic Cabernet Sauvignon grapes and is meant to soothe the savage palate at 19% alcohol! In the glass, violet in color with garnet tones. Intense aroma’s of ripe plum, anise, and rich black cherries. Velvety smooth across the palate, bursting with dark fruit and light balanced tannins. Sumptuous flavors of ripe black cherry, dried plum, tobacco, and anise. Smooth, creamy, and dreamy. On the second sip, more black cherry flavors came through along with notes of chocolate, smoke, and sweet caramel! This is a wonderful dessert wine full of character and personality! I feel like I am in an episode of “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous”! This is the perfect sweet wine to pair with chocolate truffles or that cigar you have been hiding in the drawer. Very concentrated, luxurious, and the ideal after dinner drink. You can order this wine online from the Hawk and Horse Winery at www.hawkandhorsevineyards.com and have it lovingly delivered to your doorstep.       93 Points and about $50 for a 375 ml bottle.
