Food Pairings for Hourglass Merlot Napa Valley Blueline
Explosive aromatics of dark sour cherry, black berry puree, plum and hints of cedar and tea leaf are followed on the palate with flavors of plum, hoisin, dark chocolate and tangy red fruits. A whiff of sage and fennel from the Block 11 Cabernet Sauvignon can be found as the wine opens. This Merlot exhibits stunning opulence and density, but also bright acidity and vibrant minerality. 83% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Sauvignon. Not yet reviewed; 2009 vintage rated 92 points by Wine Spectator.
