Reviews For This Wine

International Wine Cellar | 92

($110) Saturated red-ruby color. Superripe, liqueur-like aromas of candied berries, iron, fennel and black licorice. Sweet, thick flavors of currant, blackberry and licorice. A big, rich, youthfully aggressive wine that needs a year or two to harmonize. Finishes with ripe, dusty, very broad tannins that coat the palate. From a vineyard just off the valley floor, planted on fractured shale over bedrock.

Wine Advocate | 93

A dark opaque plum/garnet/purple color is followed by a beautiful, fully evolved bouquet of spring flowers, black currant jam, blackberries and hints of dark raspberries, camphor and acacia flowers. Silky, full-bodied and voluptuously textured, this opulent, expansive, generously endowed, fully mature Cabernet Sauvignon should be consumed over the next 5-6 years.

Wine Spectator | 92

Dark, ripe, rich and concentrated, with a tight beam of cedar, currant, lead pencil and wild berry that fans out nicely on the finish, showing a firm band of tannins. 550 cases made.

Delicious: This is singing right now. The nose is currant and dark fruit. Tannins are softening. Licorice and plum flavors cover the palate. Long finish.

About This Producer

Proprietor Jeff Smith has developed Hourglass Cabernet into one of the most anticipated releases each year since its debut in 1997. Winemaker (and Jeff's fellow band mate) Bob Foley gets the most out of this vineyard, named for its location at the narrowest point of the Napa Valley, just north of St. Helena. Production is consistently under 1000 cases.
