Red Hawk is a washed-rind, triple-cream cheese made with fresh organic cow's milk, produced by Cowgirl Creamery, based in Marin County, California, United States. The cheese is a combination of organic milk and cream. During four weeks of aging the cheese is washed with a brine solution that develops red-orange rind that gives the cheese its name. This complex cheese is rich in taste with hints of cured meats, roasted peanuts, and ocean brine behind the pungent funk.
