Red Hawk Cheese from Cowgirl Creamery is a triple-cream, washed-rind, fully-flavored cheese made from organic cow's milk. This small cheese is aged for 6 weeks and washed with a brine solution that promotes the growth of a bacteria that tints the rind a sunset red-orange.
Red Hawk is named after a raptor that circles the skies in northern Marin County where this gourmet cheese is made and it has a presence, like all washed rind cheeses. If you like Epoisses, you will most likely like this Californian cheese.
