Hourglass HGIII Red Blend 2016
Lucky Break indeed!! We only do these when it's like carpe diem, super-limited, we're-amazed-to-even-get-any type of wines....this is the real deal!! HOURGLASS --- Lovers of LUSH, HEDONISTIC, DECADENT, opulent, and straight up slinky, sexy Napa Valley ambrosia, GET SERIOUS right now! 92+ POINTS to boot!
2014 sold out in 7 hours.
2015 sold out in 5 hours (people who bought the ‘14 KNEW what to do!)
As with most “Lucky Break” wines, we have WAY LESS than normal. But oh MAN, do you want this. A stellar Napa vintage, this 2016 is a BLOCKBUSTER, sexy, plush Merlot, Cabernet, and Petite Sirah blend that is somehow even better than last year. It truly drinks like something that could EASILY cost $100+, and in fact the regular Hourglass wines do run between $125-$225!! HGIII is a “drink now” wine but it is BIG stuff -- trust us, no one is going to think it is anything but SULTRY.
Winemaker Tony Biagi (who has made countless amazing wines at Plumpjack, Cade, Sinegal, etc over the years…) is the genius behind this roller-coaster funhouse of a wine --- ahhhh! We’re not going to say anymore...if you had this from us in the past, you know what to do! Good luck!
a vision unfolding.

About The Producer
Hourglass Wine released their first vintage in 1997 and
until recently, their entire production was from a single 4 acre vineyard just
north of St. Helena. The Smith Family have lived in the Napa Valley since the
mid 1960’s and today Hourglass is owned by Jeff Smith and his wife Carolyn.
Jeff’s father was a real estate developer and had the foresight to recognize
that people would be captivated not only by the scenic beauty of the Napa
Valley but also by the wines produced from this region.
