A stunning, seductive style that features layers of creamy oak, dried currant, plum and mocha. Turns smooth and polished, unlocking doors of hazelnut and spice and ending with a long, full-blown finish. Drink now through 2017.
The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Hourglass has a dense purple color and a sweet nose of licorice, black currants, smoke, cedar, and some high-class subtle oak in the background. The wine is full-bodied, avoids some of the harder tannins that sometimes arise in this vintage, and has a very layered, multi-dimensional mouthfeel and finish. This is a beauty that can be drunk now or cellared for 20 or more years. The well-known Bob Foley has been the consistent force behind these high quality wines from Hourglass. Their top wine comes from a gently sloping vineyard near Napa’s Lodi Lane.
Blueberry, cola, hints of new oak, and intense fruit on the nose. Full bodied, with a big impact of toasted oak and ripe fruit but ends very woody, with caramel and chocolate. Another full throttled Cab from California. Try it in a year or two; needs to calm down a little.
Good deep ruby-red. Smoky plum, tobacco leaf, spices and eucalyptus on the nose. Lush and spicy, with good underlying minerality to the plum, licorice and marzipan flavors. Quite dry and uncompromising cabernet, finishing with a broad dusting of tannins and very good length. I'd give this a year or two in the cellar.
