Coming from winemaker Bob Foley, this small production Cabernet shows his characteristic winemaking style of ripe dark fruit concentration, sweet round tannic structure and a long velvety finish. A powerhouse of a wine. The name comes from the hourglass shape of the vineyard located in the narrowest part of Napa.

Winemaker's Notes:

The stylistic goal of Hourglass is to achieve a seamless balance of fruit concentration with the elegance of more subtle nuances driven by its terroir. Drawing from its Napa Valley origin, Hourglass has a forward depth of fruit, yet is not a "fruit bomb". Saturated mid-palate texture is again balanced by lively acidity, which rolls into a refined finish. Moderately high alcohol is balanced against integrated sweet oak, and depth of fruit. Aromatics play as important a role as texture, or flavor. Nuances of black licorice, mint, eucalyptus, earth, coffee/toffee, crème-de-cassis, and pomegranate, blend back and forth between aroma, and taste.
