Product Overview

The 2017 Hourglass HG III is Tony Biagi's riff on the Napa Valley red blend using select lots from the estate's Blueline Estate vineyard as well as other top vineyards in Napa Valley. The wine greets with lifted aromatics of wild cherry, blueberry, cassis, and subtle hints of dried flowers and savory herbs. These aromas carry forward on the palate, the medley of saturated, pure fruit flavors providing dimension to the broad-shouldered, sumptuous texture. Dense and concentrated, yet balanced by lively acidity, a refined structure and well-integrated tannins, HG III delivers an eminently drinkable wine at cork-pull.

Varietal Composition: Merlot, Petit Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and more (percentages not specified)
Appellation: Napa Valley AVA
Aging: 16 months in new and seasoned French oak
Winemaker: Tony Biagi

90 Points - Wine Advocate
"The 2017 HG III is a blend of 60% Merlot, 17% Petite Sirah, 5% Syrah, 4% Cabernet Sauvignon plus some mixed field blends. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it has a pretty perfume of baked black cherries, plum pudding and spice cake with wafts of wilted roses and garrigue. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is filled with evocative juicy black and blue fruits, framed by plush tannins, finishing spicy." -LPB, 10/31/19
