Very attractive blackberry and blueberry character with cedar and dried flowers. It’s full-bodied with tight, chewy tannins and enticing, transparent fruit underneath. Flavorful finish. Drink after 2022.

The 2018 reveals a deep purple/ruby hue to go with a juicy, endearing, up-front style that carries lots of blackcurrant and black cherry fruits, hints of chocolate, spice, and dried herbs, medium to full body, and a plush, sexy, yet beautifully balanced profile. It's going to evolve for 15 years and is a rock-solid bottle of wine.

The 2018 HG III is a delicious entry-level wine from Hourglass. Juicy dark cherry, spice, leather and cedar all run through this racy, open-knit Merlot-based blend. It’s easy to look past the HG III here given the level...   The 2018 HG III is a delicious entry-level wine from Hourglass. Juicy dark cherry, spice, leather and cedar all run through this racy, open-knit Merlot-based blend. It’s easy to look past the HG III here given the level of the other wines, but that's a mistake, as the 2018 is fabulous and a great value too. -- Antonio Galloni

Deep garnet-purple in color, it leaps from the glass with open-knit scents of plum preserves, stewed black cherries and boysenberries with hints of spice cake, cumin seed and aniseed. Medium-bodied, the palate is delicately played and refreshing, featuring loads of savory accents to the juicy black fruits, finishing softly textured and spicy.- LPB
