Winemaker Notes

Blending fruit from five renowned vineyards, the 2019 Sauvignon Blanc offers perfumed aromas of honeydew melon, Meyer lemon zest, and peach blossom counterpointed by bright notes of Granny Smith apple, spearmint, and freshly cut hay. On the palate, limeade, lemon meringue, and Pippin apple intertwine with hints of brioche, honey, and chamomile flowers. The addition of 5% Semillon, 40% barrel fermentation, and frequent lees stirring creates complexity, supple texture, and depth, with focused acidity and chalky minerality providing precision and balance.

Blend: 91% Sauvignon Blanc, 9% Semillon

Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
COMMENTARY: The 2019 Hourglass Sauvignon Blanc is an excellent wine with a clear focus on the grape's inherent qualities. TASTING NOTES: This wine shows up with aromas and flavors of dried herbs, rustic spices, and ripe citrus. Pair it with panko-coated, pan-fried Petrale. (Tasted: November 24, 2020, San Francisco, CA)

Vinous

The 2019 Sauvignon Blanc is bright and crisp. Lemon peel, white flowers, mint, orchard fruit and tomato leaf are nicely delineated. The Sauvignon is done in equal parts tank and oak, with an approach that favors energy over volume. The bright, saline finish is so appealing. Drinking window: 2021 - 2025

JD 90
Jeb Dunnuck

Based on 95% Sauvignon Blanc and 5% Semillon, the 2019 Sauvignon Blanc is a charmer, with up-front citrus, lime, and pink grapefruit notes as well as a clean, lively, nicely balanced, fruit-forward style on the palate. It's going to be incredibly versatile on the dinner table and keep for a year or so.

Hourglass Hourglass Winery Winery Image
Hourglass wines represent a cutting-edge, modern Napa Valley winemaking style. Ned Smith bought the property in 1976 and his goal quickly shifted from fruit trees to his favorite wine, Zinfandel, with the lofty hope of supplying grapes to local wineries in exchange for finished wine. The land was eventually taken over by son Jeff Smith. In 1992, Jeff enlisted his family friend - and former rock band cohort - Bob Foley as winemaker for their new venture. Like so many aspiring guitarists, Bob had kept his day job over the years, making wine and garnering countless accolades and rock-star status for such labels as Robert Foley Vineyards, Switchback Ridge, Pride Mountain, School House and Paloma. Bob continues to make all the Hourglass wines and has the deep purple-stained hands to prove it. The calluses, however, are as much from guitar playing as his meticulous cellar work. Then, Hourglass's inaugural release came with the 1997 vintage, a seminal Napa vintage by many critics' standards.

With the christening of the winery at Blueline and its distinct single-varietal wines, Hourglass has entered an exciting new phase of its evolution. A brand synonymous with terroir-driven, modern Napa wines of the highest caliber, its goal is and will always remain the same: To capture the essence of two of Napa Valley's most expressive vineyard sites in bottled form, and to have the honor of sharing them with you and your families for decades to come.

Calistoga Wine

Napa Valley, California

One of Napa Valley’s oldest wine growing subregions but last to gain appellation status, Calistoga occupies the northernmost section of the valley. Beginning at the foot of Mount St. Helena, its vineyards stretch over steep canyons and roll out onto the valley floor. The soils in Calistoga are volcanic, which means they are heavy in minerals, low in organic matter and allow good drainage for vine roots, creating less green growth and more concentration of flavor within the grape berries.

Summer days are very hot but most nights cool down with moist ocean breezes sneaking in over the Mayacamas Mountains or from Knights Valley to its northwest.

Cabernet Sauvignon is the area’s star variety with Zinfandel coming in a strong second, though the latter commands far less price per tonnage so continues to be outshined by Cabernet in vineyard acreage, save for some important exceptions.

Capable of a vast array of styles, Sauvignon Blanc is a crisp, refreshing variety that equally reflects both terroir and varietal character. Though it can vary depending on where it is grown, a couple of commonalities always exist—namely, zesty acidity and intense aromatics. This variety is of French provenance. Somm Secret—Along with Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc is a proud parent of Cabernet Sauvignon. That green bell pepper aroma that all three varieties share is no coincidence—it comes from a high concentration of pyrazines (herbaceous aromatic compounds) inherent to each member of the family.
