This is a rich and powerful that is not for the faint of heart. The bouquet is packed with black cherry, currant, spice, and cigar box. The texture is polished and mouth-coating, displaying tons of dark berries, baking spice, and creamy oak. This is a fabulous bottle of wine now and will continue to drink well for another 7-8 years.
Hourglass Wine released their first vintage in 1997 and until recently, their entire production was from a single 4-acre vineyard just north of St. Helena. The Smith Family have lived in the Napa Valley since the mid 1960’s and today Hourglass is owned by Jeff Smith and his wife Carolyn. Jeff’s father was a real estate developer and had the foresight to recognize that people would be captivated not only by the scenic beauty of the Napa Valley but also by the wines produced from this region.
