2013 Hourglass "Blueline Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1400428 94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Blueline wraps around the palate with striking depth. The 2013 has softened quite a bit over the last year, which has allowed the opulence and intensity of the fruit to emerge more fully. Hints of leather, smoke, spice and dark-fleshed fruit are all pushed forward. (AG) Inner quote mark (10/2015)

94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This calmly seductive wine has a deep, dark color, absolutely gorgeous fruit, wood smoke and baking spice aromas and a gentle texture that lets all the berry, black-cherry and pomegranate flavors soak into the taste buds. While quite full-bodied, it's easy on the tongue but does have an extra fine-grained wrapping of tannin to keep it firm. *Cellar Selection* (JG) Inner quote mark (8/2016)

93 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Blueline Estate includes 9% Petit Verdot and a 5% Malbec. It offers terrific blackcurrant, cassis, tobacco leaf, lead pencil and earth aromas and flavors, full-bodied richness, plenty of upfront fruit and a great finish. It bucks the vintage stereotype and is forward, lush and sexy, yet still has the mid-palate density to keep for another 15-20 years, although there’s no need to delay gratification either. Inner quote mark (7/2017)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Aromas of violet, black licorice, kirsch and spicy blackberry give this plenty of flavor, depth and persistence as the tight focus holds through the finish, gaining tannic traction and leading to a mouthwatering, puckery aftertaste. (JL) Inner quote mark (11/2016)

91 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Blue Line (86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Petit Verdot and the rest Malbec) is rich, with medium to full body, the classic tobacco leaf and crème de cassis notes, and again, very good purity and length. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2015)
