Fruit forward, delicious blend. Surprisingly 64% Merlot, 20% Petit Sirah, 6% Cab. You’d think this was a cab heavy wine. Wine Access for $50. Stock up 2017 if you see it again. — 22 days ago

Monthly WTF wine group night. Our theme was American oak vs French oak. All wines tasted blind. We started off with two bottles of bubbly and finished with two non-themed reds.
Fun to contrast alongside the ‘12 Ridge Cab. A lot more rich fruit here, but also channeling more tannin. Rich blue and black fruits with currant, baking spices at first, but there is a very nice balance of herbal notes, bayleaf and dusty tannin. Very enjoyable and still getting better. This place has one of the most gorgeous tasting rooms I’ve ever seen, so visiting is a must! Thanks @Bill Makens — 2 months ago

What an incredible second day here in Napa. Jesus started us off with an amazing tasting at Davies/Schramsberg, Crocker & Starr gave us our cab franc fix, Montagu & Addax put on a double tasting, and Hourglass knocked it out of the park at the end of the day! I won’t post each wine we tasted, but I’ll highlight the best from each spot.
Without a doubt the highlight of the Addax & Montagu Tasting. This ‘15 Tench Cabernet has winemaker Russell Bevan all over it. More of an iron fist in a velvet glove than I found the ‘14 to be. Red, black and blue fruits on the nose but the weight showed so much structure and appeal...best word to use here is plush. The fruit was so incredibly soft alongside the smoke, mint, and cassis. The new Addax Ritchie Chardonnay was tasted against Montagu’s Ritchie Chardonnay and it was a tie. 👌 — 2 years ago
Also, very smooth. Have really enjoyed all of the hourglass wines. All somewhat of a blend. $1032/12cs — a month ago

Got a Corvin tasting! A 100% Cab, shows aromas of full complex berry fruits with floral notes. On the palate fully ripe blackberry and cherry flavors with gentle hints of cacao, espresso and graphite character. Fine full tannins, reminiscent of a Barolo, lingering with toasty tones ending a bit hot due to high ABV. Nice! Tasting Sample! — 2 years ago
