Wines for Easter Dinner
By Stacy Slinkard
Hawk and Horse Vineyards 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon
This limited production Cabernet Sauvignon from California's Lake County in the Red Hills AVA, is well-situated in the northern Mayacamas Mountains and tows a stringent Demeter Biodynamic certification along with it. Not your typical California Cabernet, this bottle carries an almost Old World elegance, perhaps its the 80% new French Oak, or the minimalist philosophies that direct cellar operations, maybe it’s the touch of Bordeaux-inspired Petit Verdot; whatever it is the sum of this wine is the consummate calling for an Easter Dinner that features prime rib.
