Hourglass Wines represent a cutting-edge, modern Napa Valley winemaking style. Proprietor Jeff Smith has developed Hourglass Cabernet into one of the most anticipated releases each year since its debut in 1997. A brand synonymous with terroir-driven, modern Napa wines of the highest caliber, its goal is and will always remain the same: to capture the essence of two of Napa Valley's most expressive vineyard sites in bottled form, and to have the honor of sharing them with you and your families for decades to come. Production is consistently under 1,000 cases.
This package includes a 3-liter bottle of 2013 Blue line Cabernet Sauvignon, an exclusive tour and tasting at the winery for four people and four tickets to Mabon, Hourglass's exclusive annual harvest festival on September 7 featuring live music, delicious food trucks, and fun surprises. Guests also get to enjoy a fabulous wine bar showcasing all of the Hourglass Blueline offerings.
2013 Blueline Cabernet Sauvignon
Wine Enthusiast - 94 pts.
This calmly seductive wine has a deep, dark color, absolutely gorgeous fruit, wood smoke and baking spice aromas and a gentle texture that lets all the berry, black-cherry and pomegranate flavors soak into the taste buds. While quite full-bodied, it's easy on the tongue but does have an extra fine-grained wrapping of tannin to keep it firm. Best from 2020 through 2030.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 91 pts.
The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Blue Line (86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Petit Verdot and the rest Malbec) is rich, with medium to full body, the classic tobacco leaf and crème de cassis notes, and again, very good purity and length. Drink it over the next 10-15 years.
Tour and Tastings for four people on a mutually agreed-upon date. Must schedule tour in advance. Four tickets to Hourglass Wine Company Mabon Event on September 7. Names non-transferable.
