Hourglass The Ambassador Blueline Estate Red Blend 2011

Ratings on Delectable

Awaiting correction, but this is the Blueline Estate, Ambassador Cuvée. Not familiar with this and no info on the website. Hoping @Anthony Biagi can shed some light. 240 bottles produced, so initially thought a single barrel wine. Hmm.. no Varietal listed, so now thinking a blend. Gave this four hours of air on Christmas Eve. Shy on the nose to start, but smooth and elegant with blackberry. Merlot? Nose is more open on night two. Cab Franc? Some menthol sneaking in on the nose as well. Whatever composition of a Bdx blend it is, it is a treat to drink and putting a positive note on the 2011 vintage.
