2 Hawk 2018 Padigan Series Malbec



2 Hawk 2018 Padigan Series Malbec


Our site in the Rogue Valley is particularly well-suited to Malbec and when we have a growing season like 2018 our creative gloves come off and we reimagine ways to tease out subtlety and nuance in the wines. In 2018 we pushed the maturity envelope even further, but not to the detriment of balance, and again explored the mechanisms of very late season ripening. Needless to say, the outcome surpassed our expectations. The 2018 Padigan Series Malbec is, simply stated, a blockbuster. A slow, cool fermentation by our native vineyard yeasts combined with extended skin contact in proprietary French oak gave us a wine with the rare combination of elegance and power that we require for our Padigan Series wines. The hallmark of these wines is their purity, expression, and utter grace. Enjoy 2023-2033 with classic goose confit cassoulet or, for the adventurous, a Padron 1964 Anniversary Maduro Torpedo.


Although part of the Rogue Valley AVA, the 2Hawk Estate Vineyard lies in an area known locally as the Bear Creek sub-basin. The two-layered bedrock beneath our soils consists of a shallow volcanic layer, the Roxy Formation, and a deeper, softer layer of alluvial sandstone, The Payne Cliffs Formation. The Klamath Mountains uplifting event, roughly 20 million years ago, began a long erosion process that resulted in our predominately volcanic soils, which are unique to the Rogue Valley AVA. An area of cobbled river rocks in our eastern section and a sandy streak of considerably younger colluvial deposit running through the center of our vineyard site distinguish 2Hawk from neighboring vineyards. Overall, we have some of the oldest soils in the valley and they are characterized as shallow silty- to clayey-loams that are moderately well drained with moderate to rapid runoff.
