Made from grapes grown at the Rock Ridge Vineyards in Valley Center, CA.  Owned by Connie and Stephen Roberts, the Rock Ridge Vineyards are a collection of bi lateral cordon pruned and head trained vines that have been brought back to life from a steady decline.  With the help of vineyard guru, Luke McCollum and crew, these vines have produced their first 100% Carménère produced by Hungry Hawk Vineyards and Winery.  This first 100% Rock Ridge Vineyards Carménère is deep purple in color with rustic aromas of dark berries laced with mocha and black pepper.  On the palate, the berries follow with a chewy frame of velvet cocoa and an earthy minerality.  Truly a magnificent bottling of teamwork at it's finest!
