2018 HOURGLASS “HG III” PROPRIETARY RED

$49.99 $49.99

Hourglass HG III is strategically blended with the restaurant environment in mind and crafted in an approachable and expressive style that doesn’t require decanting. The winery describes it as a study in the art of blending. They make it with declassified Blueline Estate fruit and other meticulously selected sites that lend to the full spectrum of fruit and rich textures that make this wine so delightful.

HG III beautifully intertwines Merlot, Petit Sirah, and Cabernet Sauvignon. The Merlot contributes sleek textures and elegant bright red fruit components. Simultaneously, the Petite Sirah provides the anchoring deep dark blue and black fruits, while the Cabernet weaves these together with structural framing and elegant refinement.

Hourglass is made by Toni Biagi, who spent nearly ten years crafting the high-scoring Plumpjack wines, which rank among the best in Napa Valley. HG III offers a superb pedigree, and at around $50, the value is unrivaled.

Description

2018 HOURGLASS “HG III” PROPRIETARY RED

“Readers looking for an introduction to the wines from this great estate should check out the 2018 HG III, which is always a more Merlot-dominated blend. The 2018 reveals a deep purple/ruby hue to go with a juicy, endearing, up-front style that carries lots of blackcurrant and black cherry fruits, hints of chocolate, spice, and dried herbs, medium to full body, and a plush, sexy, yet beautifully balanced profile. It’s going to evolve for 15 years and is a rock-solid bottle of wine.”
93 Points
“Very attractive blackberry and blueberry character with cedar and dried flowers. It’s full-bodied with tight, chewy tannins and enticing, transparent fruit underneath. Flavorful finish. Drink after 2022.”
