Well-known winemaker Bob Foley has been the consistent force behind these high quality wines from Hourglass. Extremely limited. 95 Points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2018 Hourglass Cabernet Sauvignon Blueline Estate shows the classic, more focused, elegant – yet also concentrated – style of the vintage brilliantly. Sporting a dense purple hue as well as killer notes of crème de cassis, blueberries, scorched earth, graphite, and noticeable minerality, it's medium to full-bodied and has terrific purity of fruit, plenty of tannins, and a great, great finish. It's tight, backward, and in need of 2-4 years of bottle age, but this classic, age-worthy Cabernet Sauvignon will have 2-3 decades of longevity." 95 Points Robert Parker: "Deep garnet-purple in color, the Hourglass 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Blueline Estate charges out of the gate with bold crème de cassis, plum preserves and Black Forest cake scents plus suggestions of underbrush, pencil lead, tobacco leaf and tilled soil. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers lovely tension to the juicy black fruit layers, supported by firm, grainy tannins and finishing on a lingering mineral note."
