Hourglass Wines is a small Californian winery in Napa Valley with a reputation for limited-production Cabernet Sauvignon. It was founded in the 1990s by Jeff Smith, who took over farming the vineyard that his father Ned had planted in the 1970s.

Smith replanted the 2-hectare (5-acre) vineyard with Cabernet Sauvignon in 1992. His family had been growing and selling Zinfandel from the vineyard to local producers since 1976, but the spread of phylloxera in California in the late 1980s and early 1990s was killing the vines. Cabernet Sauvignon replaced the Zinfandel and the vineyard was named Hourglass Vineyard after the topography of the valley, shaped by the surrounding Mayacamas Range. The inaugural vintage was in 1997.

Rating 98 RP - The majestic 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon possesses the same characteristics as the 2001 just more of them. Boasting more perfume a bigger attack and mid-palate as well as greater length and intensity this beautiful Cabernet reveals notes of camphor intermixed with black currants cherries licorice cedar and minerals. Full-bodied and opulent with a structured finish it is accessible now because of its wealth of fruit and concentration but it should easily evolve for 15 or more years. RP
