Hourglass Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2000

Winemaker's Notes:

The eucalyptus is slightly subdued and balanced against more aromas of black licorice, earth, white pepper, and coffee/toffee. Again, on the palate, eucalyptus plays more of a supporting role against crème-de-cassis, fig, and dark fruit flavors. The texture is soft with a long finish, but this vintage has slightly elevated tannins. While the tannins created some grip when the wine was bottled, they are now mellowing and becoming more integrated. Decant 4 hours for full aromatics and texture.

This is gorgeous. Smooth, rich, ripe and loaded with complex flavors. Black cherry, blackberry, plum, cloves, coffee, spice, chocolate, licorice, anise, menthol and eucalyptus all weave a kaleidoscope of taste for a tantalizing, heady and satisfying... Wine Enthusiast. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2000 Hourglass Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml



The eucalyptus is slightly subdued and balanced against more aromas of black licorice, earth, white pepper, and coffee/toffee.
