Product Description

"The Hourglass 2014 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon shows more of its traditional dark red pomegranate and currant characteristics weaving together with savory cassis and black currant. An earthy minerality runs through the aromatics and across the palate, lending an umami richness to the interlocking flavors. This minerality is a signature of the iron-rich Hambright fractured bedrock soils in our Hourglass Estate Vineyard and quite consistent vintage to vintage. The texture is broad and deep with a long arching finish. The structure is classically woven with layers of silky texture enveloping a well-knit core of polished tannin while elegant vibrancy counters its richness and power. The wine's natural acidity creates a lovely tension and lift, lending brightness to what otherwise would be a very dense, rich wine. Wonderful now, the wine will cellar beautifully for 20 or more years, gaining exotic nuances of cedar, tea-leaf and cigar box as it approaches year 2021." (abridged Winemaker's Notes)

(92-95) Points - Vinous Media
"The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is fresh, nuanced and wonderfully delineated throughout, but also captures plenty of fruit intensity. Delineated, vibrant and layered, the 2014 is persistent and bright in the glass, with good complexity and enough depth to drink well for the next year or two. Mint and eucalyptus add further shades of nuance. The 2014 is a bit nervous today, but time in bottle should help the wine flesh out a bit further."

92+ Points - Wine Advocate
"The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and a beauty, with notes of graphite, white flowers, blackcurrants, coffee bean and white chocolate. The wine has fabulous fruit on the attack and midpalate, a full body, sweet tannin and a long finish. Drink it over the next 15-20 years."
