  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

    ($75) Good medium red. Aromatic nose combines redcurrant, plum and tobacco. Sweet, supple and moderately dense, with good definition and lift to the flavors of dark berries, plum and chocolate. A rather lush merlot that finishes nicely persistent, with substantial sweet, melting tannins. The first release under this label.

    Beautifully focused and elegant, yet complex, showing vivid black cherry and toasty vanilla aromas, with richly layered currant, herb and spice flavors that finish with ripe but firm tannins.

  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 91

    Readers looking for a soft, richly fruity, mocha and coffee-infused wine with oodles of berry fruit should check out the 2006 Merlot Blue Line. This wine is hedonistic and luscious, with plenty of Merlot typicity, medium to full body, and a soft, silky-textured finish

    Sweet nose, eucalyptus. Great weight and balance on palate. Nice finish (med-long).

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.
