Highlights

  • Hawkwind is inspired by our estate’s breathtaking summit perched on Mount Veeder’s southern ridge
  • A wine as rich and free as the morning sun and as wildly alive as the hawks who soar and sing above this ridge
  • Showcases the stunning aromatics and expressive richness of the rugged Cabernet Sauvignon grown here
  • 2016’s regal power is meticulously crafted into an elegant, lusty classic

There is a breathtakingly beautiful hill in southern Napa Valley. It overlooks the entire northern reaches of San Francisco Bay. It is a rare and wild place. No other vineyards are nearby. Just sky, trees, sun, rain and wind. The Cabernet grown here produces wine as rich and free as the morning sun and as wildly alive as the hawks who soar and sing above this ridge each day. You can taste this sense of place fully and completely with each sip. There is nothing else like it.

Winemaker, Rubissow

Winemaker, Timothy Milos

A sixth-generation Bay Area native, Timothy grew up exploring the hills of rural west Marin, building houses in the summer, reading and cooking. In addition to diverse interests in philosophy, history and politics, Timothy pursued Plant Pathology studies at New York???s Cornell University and graduate level research in Enology and Viticulture at California's U.C. Davis. While in New York, Timothy discovered the burgeoning winemaking scene in the Finger Lakes area. Here at last he found an intersection for his passions, science, history and art, all tied to the land, the seasons, and the work of one's hands. Timothy has made wine ever since. In 1997, he began working his way up the Napa Valley wine ladder, starting at Opus One, moving on to Stag's Leap Wine Cellars, and eventually directing winemaking at Cliff Lede, and the former S. Anderson. Regarding his work with the Rubissow Family, Timothy says "It is a great pleasure to work with a family and team who has such a deep respect for the land, for the crafts of winegrowing and winemaking, and for the tradition of excellence created by their forebears."
