2018 Hourglass "Blueline Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1503097 96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Blueline is so sensual, so elegant, and yet it has plenty of depth. Bright acids and underlying veins of tannin give shape to this super-refined, nuanced Cabernet Sauvignon. Moderate levels of ripeness and the personality of the long growing season really come through. The 2018 is one of the classiest wines I have ever tasted here. In a word: impressive. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2021)

95 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2018 Hourglass Cabernet Sauvignon Blueline Estate shows the classic, more focused, elegant – yet also concentrated – style of the vintage brilliantly. Sporting a dense purple hue as well as killer notes of crème de cassis, blueberries, scorched earth, graphite, and noticeable minerality, it's medium to full-bodied and has terrific purity of fruit, plenty of tannins, and a great, great finish. It's tight, backward, and in need of 2-4 years of bottle age, but this classic, age-worthy Cabernet Sauvignon will have 2-3 decades of longevity. Inner quote mark (1/2021)

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A barrel sample made up of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot, 4% Malbec and 2% Cabernet Franc, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Blueline Estate is medium to deep garnet-purple colored and features flamboyant crushed black currants, wild blueberries, boysenberries and raspberry preserves notes plus touches of cedar chest, camphor, pencil lead and underbrush with a waft of potpourri. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has loads of taut, muscular fruit and a rugged framed of grainy tannins, finishing cedar-laced. (LPB) Inner quote mark (2/2021)

94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A firm, tight Napa red with blackberry and blueberry aromas and flavors. The focused, polished tannins are tense and driven, giving the wine nice length. Better after 2022. Inner quote mark (1/2021)

93 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Aromas here perfectly balance charred-oak aromas with those of fresh purple flowers and structured red fruits. More lush and fleshy on the palate than the Hourglass Estate bottling, but with a similarly angular quality to the tannins. In need of softening up to come into its own, a well-made expression nonetheless. Inner quote mark
