Hourglass Wine Company Blueline Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The ’08 Hourglass Blueline Cabernet Sauvignon is rich and deeply concentrated. Doughy blackberry pie - think of the wafting intoxication as a freshly baked pie cools - sweet, yeasty dough. Yum!! Toasted espresso bean and cocoa powder, swirled with hints of sage and tarweed eliciting a sweet and savory character - a sensual ying and yang. The palate explodes with dense, dark flavors of cassis, blackberry jam, and dark sour cherry. Polished ripe tannins yield a rounded weighty texture that has soft edges at the mid palate, yet the dense, steel core leads to a lingering, haunting finish. The beauty of this wine is its classic big Calistoga Cabernet fruit focused by serious structure.
