Although their 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon has just been released, our accolades go to the family-owned boutique Hawk & Horse Vineyards 2011 Library Reserve ($75), a 98 percent Cabernet Sauvignon and 2 percent Petite Verdot blend that is very moderately priced for such an elegant Bordeaux-style red. Extremely aromatic, with prominent notes of rose petals and blackberries, it also has a tantalizing musty character, with hints of cedar in its long, dry finish. It is a wine that, in many ways, reflects the ranch-vineyard’s symbiotic relationship with nature, specifically the horses on the ranchland owned by vintners Mitch and Tracey Hawkins and Tracey’s step-dad, David Boies, paired with the majestic hawks circling the Lake County skies overhead. It is the perfect wine to sip while grilling a steak over an open flame. Afterward, enjoy their Latigo port-style wine ($50) with a Nicaraguan cigar. Often hard to find, you may have better luck ordering the 2011 Hawk & Horse Library Vintage and Latigo directly from the winery.
