2016 Hourglass "Blueline Vineyard" Napa Valley Merlot

SKU #1385186 93 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2016 Merlot Blueline Estate (there’s 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Malbec) was brought up in two-thirds new oak and is another beautiful wine from winemaker Tony Biagi. Ripe blue fruits, blood orange, mint, and leafy herbs all flow to a medium to full-bodied, ripe yet also elegant Merlot that shines for its balance and purity. Inner quote mark (1/2019)

93 points James Suckling

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Merlot Blueline has really filled out nicely over the last year. Black cherry, chocolate, menthol, lavender, licorice and spice add to the wine's undeniable appeal. Pliant and supple, with lovely aromatic top notes and terrific balance, the Merlot has a lot to offer. (AG) Inner quote mark (12/2018)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The deep purple-black colored 2016 Merlot Blueline Estate sings of crème de cassis, dried mulberries and mincemeat pie with hints of wilted roses, fallen leaves, cigar box and cloves. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the mouth with juicy, plushly textured black fruits and finishes with a menthol kick. (LPB) Inner quote mark (10/2018)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Rich, featuring concentrated dark plum and cherry tart flavors that are full, with rich, chocolaty overtones. The creamy finishes oozes with lush spiciness. (KM, Web-2018) Inner quote mark
