Hawkes 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon available now in Vintages!

hawkes_cab

Hawkes 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon is available at a Vintages location near you, for the great price of $39.95.  Released this past Saturday, March 3rd, we are presented with a rare opportunity to purchase a perfectly aged California Cabernet Sauvignon.  While the fruit is still lively and present, the aged character brings spice and herbal qualities, and the tannins are smooth and integrated.  This wine will be best enjoyed in the next year or two.  Be sure to check inventories at a store near you, or ask your local store manager to see if they can procure some for you.

Hawkes 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon is estate grown and produced in the Alexander Valley, Sonoma County, California. It is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Aged in barrel for 22 months, 40 percent of which was new French oak. It is a blend of fruit from two hillside vineyards: 60 percent from the Pyramid Ranch Vineyard, 40 percent from the Red Winery Road Vineyard.

 

Hawkes 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon has received rave reviews from:

- Tony Aspler: Fruity, still, with underlying herbs and spice accents on the nose. Full and lively, tannins are soft, its fruit core holding up nicely, warm spice - herbaceous notes come along the finish, drinking well now. Score - 4/5 stars.

- Michael Vaughan2.5/3 stars" (www.vintageassessments.com)

- David Lawrason: This is a fully mature California cabernet with leathery, cedar and tobacco notes dominating the crushed blackcurrant fruit. Still alive, mind you, but it needs to be enjoyed over the next year or three. It's full bodied, well composed and complex with fine tannin, some heat, yet an overall sense of composure. Excellent length here. 89 points. (www.winealign.com)

Slight toasty oak notes frame the expressive currant, cherry and plum notes on the nose. The fruit notes carry through to the elegantly balanced palate with hints of spice and vanilla. This wine is a pure expression of Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.

 

Hawkes 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon has received rave reviews from:

- Wine Enthusiast: "This is a beautiful Cabernet and at ..., a relative bargain given the price that great Napa Cab has hit. Dry and complex, it shows wonderful tannic structure, and the smoky oak is subtle, allowing the black and red currant and plum flavors to star. Lovely now, and should develop through 2012. Score - 92. (Steve Heimoff, Wine Enthusiast, Dec. 31, 2008)"

- Natalie MacLean: "A plummy, rich red that's balanced and full-bodied with delicious dark berries and cassis and smoky long finish. Decant for 1-2 hours. Food matches: beef rib roast. 91 points!" (www.nataliemaclean.com)

- David Lawrason: "This is a very stylish and even cabernet. A bit sweet for the genre, but it is compact with fine acidity and tannin. Expect ripe, almost dried fruit character with nicely integrated chocolaty, spicy oak. Length is very good to excellent. Enjoyable now through 2015. 90 points. (www.winealign.com)"

Core Wine Company

Core Wine Company is a family-owned and run winery in Santa Maria, California.  Core's primary vineyard is the Alta Mesa vineyard, located in Eastern Santa Barbara county in Cuyama Valley.  They also get fruit from Laetitia, Camp 4, Rodney's and French Camp, all located in Santa Barbara County.  Core produces wines primarily made from Rhone Valley varietals such as Grenache, Mourvedre, and Syrah.

Las Piedras Pura Vid was born in 1952 when Giovanni Vincenzo Pannunzio emigrated to Maipu, Argentina from his native Italy and established his vineyards in the region.  In recent years, his sons Jose and Luis began making wines with a focus on communicating the unique characteristics of the family vineyards.

 

 

Nectar Wine Imports is excited to work with these two new, quality minded producers.  We expect that you will enjoy their wines as much as those from our current suppliers.
