Tasting notes

For 2017 our Grenache Rose spent less than 6 hours on the grape skins before pressing. A brilliant color precedes aromas of fresh strawberries, citrus peel, and peach pit. The wine’s acidity keeps it fresh even as the ripe flavors of cherry candy and strawberry sorbet tingle on the palate. This is a wine that just screams summer picnic, so give it its due and pair it with grilled rockfish with pasta salad tossed with prosciutto, red onion, and paprika. Enjoy now through 2019.

Although part of the Rogue Valley AVA, the 2Hawk Estate Vineyard lies in an area known locally as the Bear Creek sub-basin. The two-layered bedrock beneath our soils consists of a shallow volcanic layer, the Roxy Formation, and a deeper, softer layer of alluvial sandstone, The Payne Cliffs Formation. The Klamath Mountains uplifting event, roughly 20 million years ago, began a long erosion process that resulted in our predominately volcanic soils, which are unique to the Rogue Valley AVA. An area of cobbled river rocks in our eastern section and a sandy streak of considerably younger colluvial deposit running through the center of our vineyard site distinguish 2Hawk from neighboring vineyards. Overall, we have some of the oldest soils in the valley and they are characterized as shallow silty- to clayey-loams that are moderately well drained with moderate to rapid runoff.
