Hourglass Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Earth, spicy mint, black licorice, and cassis intermingle with toasted espresso to elicit a haunting aromatic. Brooding and dark in aroma, the flavors come alive on the palate, woven together by good natural acidity. The acidity provides structure and lift to the darker cassis and rich black fruit flavors, by adding a layer of tangy red fruits (pomegranate and red cassis). Seamless integration from start to finish is a function of polished ripe tannins from the long even growing season.

This offers a strong minty-anise edge now, which will wow some. Intense and complex, with plenty of dark berry fruit behind it. Best to decant or cellar. Best from 2012 through 2024. 690 cases made. -JL Wine Spectator. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2009 Hourglass Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml
