2017 Hourglass "HG III" Napa Valley Red Blend (Previously $50)

SKU #1421571 90 points Jeb Dunnuck

 As to the reds, the 2017 HG III showed well. A Merlot-dominated blend, it has lots of spice, incense, and dried herb notes as well as a core of chocolaty fruit. Medium to full-bodied, forward, balanced, and undeniably delicious...  (1/2020)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2017 HG III is a blend of 60% Merlot, 17% Petite Sirah, 5% Syrah, 4% Cabernet Sauvignon plus some mixed field blends. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it has a pretty perfume of baked black cherries, plum pudding and spice cake with wafts of wilted roses and garrigue. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is filled with evocative juicy black and blue fruits, framed by plush tannins, finishing spicy. (LPB)  (10/2019)

Vinous

 The 2017 HG III is the entry-level wine in this range. It is soft, fruity and easy to like. Sweet red berry fruit and floral notes are nicely lifted in this pretty, Merlot-based blend. I would prefer to drink it over the next few years... (AG)  (1/2020)

K&L Notes

Winemaker's Notes: "A beautiful, classic example of grace and balance, weighted with depth and dimension. An aromatic waterfall of bright floral notes (rose oil and tobacco), descending into pure fruit (red and black cassis), anchored with toasty wood aromas (cedar). A kaleidoscope of overlapping aromas and flavors that carry through to the initial palate impression and on to a lingering finish. Merlot provides the influence of tangy dark sour cherry, raspberry and cedar, with a bright liveliness on the palate. Petit Sirah yields the deeper bass notes and the weight of darker flavors (black olive, blueberry, bakers chocolate and blackberry bramble), and Cabernet Sauvignon provides the classic delineation and structural framework that weaves the blend together, all the while allowing Merlot to charm with its seductive lusciousness - rich and compelling."
