Savory and rich, with notes of cured meats, roasted peanuts, and ocean brine behind the pungent funk. Red Hawk is for the bold, conveying the character of coastal Northern California and Cowgirl Creamery. Beyond its rough and rowdy aroma, this cheese has a rich and meaty flavor with balanced notes of cured meats, wild sage, and a kiss of ocean air. This special cheese is made exclusively in our original Point Reyes Station creamery to capture the terroir.
The pride of Point Reyes Station is named for the majestic local red-tailed Hawk that soars over the Marin Headlands, Red Hawk is a small-batch production organic washed rind triple cream made with single source organic milk from West Marin (Bivalve Dairy). Each piece is delicately washed with a simple brine for four weeks, developing a glistening sunset-hued rind.
Mt. Tam’s funky cousin showcases the best of Point Reyes Station, Cowgirl’s Creamery’s birthplace, and the only place where this unique cheese can be made.
The wild bacteria that define this bold, sumptuous triple cream are native to Point Reyes; in fact, we could not make this cheese anywhere else. Aged four weeks and washed with a brine solution that encourages the sunset red-orange rind, Red Hawk captures the true essence of West Marin.
