I have always enjoyed this luscious SB! Local store seems to be getting a steady supply. I have retrieved 16's 18's and now the 2019! Four to five yrs. age on this is amazing! Also fantastic tasting this 2019..so crisp and refreshing. Loads of lemon, white flowers, grass, spearmint, razor sharp acidity...the 14.1 alc. Is hiding in there!
Great job @Anthony Biagi 👍 — 6 months ago
Ever since we did a tasting with @Anthony Biagi i find this hard not to drink - even young. What a difference Tony has made for Hourglass as well as his own line of Patria. I probably drink his wines 1 out of every 3 or 4 bottles I have. This is a rich, opulent wine and was WOTN when we did our hourglass virtual tasting. — a year ago
When considering price, I find it hard to compete with this wine. The new entrance of @Anthony Biagi ‘s Patria is around the only wine I think of. These are beautiful Napa Cabs. Beautiful. Floral. Rich. This one is still slightly tannic and pulls at the mouth but o can imagine it a few years from now approaching the 10s or other years that mellowed out. I could drink @Sean Capiaux ‘s wines every day. — 10 months ago
Awaiting correction, but this is the Blueline Estate, Ambassador Cuvée. Not familiar with this and no info on the website. Hoping @Anthony Biagi can shed some light. 240 bottles produced, so initially thought a single barrel wine. Hmm.. no Varietal listed, so now thinking a blend. Gave this four hours of air on Christmas Eve. Shy on the nose to start, but smooth and elegant with blackberry. Merlot? Nose is more open on night two. Cab Franc? Some menthol sneaking in on the nose as well. Whatever composition of a Bdx blend it is, it is a treat to drink and putting a positive note on the 2011 vintage. — 4 years ago
