Now, you all know the legendary Hourglass. But you might not know the relatively new HGIII. It's all the lush Cabernet fruit with a bit of Merlot and Petite Sirah. Thick, rich, intense, silky, popping with plush dark fruit and sweet, spicy and aromatic new oak. It's a MASSIVE crowd-pleaser at WAY less than the $125+ Hourglass top cuvees. Made by the incomparable Tony Biagi (Plumpjack, Cade, Sinegal Estate), this new release is rockin' good stuff and a complete no-brainer to have around for all sorts of top-notch "everyday" drinking (you know, when you're not drinking Colgin or Guigal or Pingus).
Freakin' fantastic Napa sexiness! Only 10 cases to sell!
2014 HOURGLASS PROPRIETARY RED HGIII NAPA VALLEY--- $48.99!!!
The 2014 HG III has all the hallmark characteristics of a classic vintage in an expansive, approachable wine upon release. Explosive aromas and flavors of bright black and Bing cherries, blackberries, and pomegranate mingle with roasted hazelnut, toasted vanilla bean and an unmistakable hint of rich dark chocolate. Incorporating the best elements of blending, Cabernet Sauvignon gives the wine structure and a lingering finish, while Merlot provides a supple, sleek mid-palate and lush, seductive mouthfeel. The "III" in HG III, Petite Sirah brings the wine's depth and layering (its "secret sauce"). By design, HG III delivers exceptional enjoyment at the pull of the cork!
