Hourglass 2015 HG III Red Blend
The 2015 HG III has all the hallmark characteristics of a classic vintage wound into a very enjoyable and approachable wine upon release. Bounding aromas of fresh vibrant fruit—black and Bing cherry, blackberries and pomegranate—mingle with elevated notes of roasted hazel nut and toasted vanilla bean to create an explosive and compelling aromatic. Layers of fruit, crossing a spectrum of red and black berries, incorporate the finest elements of blending Merlot, Cabernet and Petit Sirah (the “III” of HG III): Merlot for a supple and sleek mid palate texture; Cabernet for core structure and extended finish; and the “secret sauce” of Petit Sirah for depth and layering. An unmistakable hint of dark chocolate yields a richness that beautifully complements a bright, pure fruit character. The firm tannins of Cabernet provide just enough structure, while the mouthfeel driven by Merlot is decidedly lush and seductive. The blend finishes strong with expansive and lingering notes.

Wine Spectator - 90 points
"Sleek and focused, but tightly wound for now. Floral blueberry and cherry aromas lead to layered flavors of blackberry, mineral and herb. The tannins ease in on the finish. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec. Best from 2017 through 2022."
