Hourglass Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is another fabulous wine in this range from Hourglass. It possesses tremendous depth and gravitas. Dark fruit, graphite, spice, chocolate and new leather all build as this potent, extroverted wine shows off its personality. St. Helena's Northern Corridor is famous for big, dramatic Cabernets. The Hourglass Cabernet is a terrific example. I loved the 2019 from barrel and am every bit as enthusiastic today. What a wine!
Composed of 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Petit Verdot, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate has a deep purple-black color. It confidently strides out of the glass with classic cassis, plum preserves and cedar chest notes with hints of violets, graphite, unsmoked cigars and incense. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is built like a brick house, offering a firm foundation of ripe, grainy tannins and a lively backbone to support the finely nuanced layers, finishing very long and mineral laced.
