Hourglass Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2005,  (WA93) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Hourglass Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

Vintage: 2005
Region: US
Appellation: Napa

WA93
Rated 93 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `Well-known winemaker Bob Foley is the force behind the wines of Hourglass. This tiny vineyard of around five acres is located just north of St. Helena on a gradually sloping hillside somewhat reminiscent of Colgin`s Tychson Hill Vineyard or Vineyard 29, both nearby neighbors. These hillsides are essentially the lower foothills of the Mayacamas Mountains and are largely volcanic rock and loamy soil called `hambright.` The 2005 is a beautiful wine, and another strong effort. Deep ruby/purple-colored with a beautifully pure nose of creme de cassis, spring flowers, subtle wood, and hints of graphite and cedar, the wine is rich, full-bodied, with sweet tannin, good acidity, and a long, long finish. It is still very youthful, but with 2-3 years of cellaring, this wine has the potential to jump a few points in score and will no doubt last for two decades. Tel. (707) 968-9332` -- Tasting note by Robert Parker
