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 5 acre (2 hectare) 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. In 2006, Hourglass Wines expanded with the purchase of the 22 acre (9ha) Blueline Vineyard. Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec joined the Cabernet Sauvignon plantings and the winery expanded its range to include Bordeaux-style blends along with its varietal wines. It has since added Sauvignon Blanc to the portfolio as well.\u003cbr\u003e","published_at":"2023-01-02T14:41:07-05:00","created_at":"2022-12-29T09:30:29-05:00","vendor":"CaskCartel.com","type":"Wine","tags":["Country_United States","Other_Wine","Producer_Hourglass","Region_Napa","RK2912","Source_Bestofwines1222","Type_Red Wine","Varietal_Merlot"],"price":29899,"price_min":29899,"price_max":29899,"available":true,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":42652751364234,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"2019 | Hourglass | Merlot Blueline Estate","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":29899,"weight":12247,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_management":"shopify","barcode":"","requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_allocations":[],"quantity_rule":{"min":1,"max":null,"increment":1}}],"images":["\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/13_b5824e75-1db0-4397-aa2b-4000ce6d690d.png?v=1672324388"],"featured_image":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/13_b5824e75-1db0-4397-aa2b-4000ce6d690d.png?v=1672324388","options":["Title"],"media":[{"alt":"2019 | Hourglass | Merlot Blueline Estate at CaskCartel.com","id":23867180449930,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":0.379,"height":646,"width":245,"src":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/13_b5824e75-1db0-4397-aa2b-4000ce6d690d.png?v=1672324388"},"aspect_ratio":0.379,"height":646,"media_type":"image","src":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/13_b5824e75-1db0-4397-aa2b-4000ce6d690d.png?v=1672324388","width":245}],"requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_groups":[],"content":"\u003ch2\u003eRed Wine: 2019 | Hourglass | Merlot Blueline Estate\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003c\/h2\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eMandarin orange oil, dark sour cherry and black plum aromatics.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eOrder from the Largest \u0026amp; Most Trusted Premium Spirits Marketplace! \u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eFeatured in\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eROLLING STONE\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eMEN'S JOURNAL\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eUS WEEKLY\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eNOTICE:\u003c\/strong\u003e Many other small liquor store sites may end up cancelling your order due to the high demand, unavailability or inaccurate inventory counts.  We have partnerships consisting of a large network of licensed retailers from within the United States, Europe and across the world ensuring orders are fulfilled.   \u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eProducer:\u003c\/b\u003e Hourglass\u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eRatings: \u003cspan style=\"color: #ff2a00;\"\u003eWA\u003c\/span\u003e | 95  \u003cspan style=\"color: #ff2a00;\" color=\"#ff2a00\"\u003eJS\u003c\/span\u003e | 94\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eVintage: \u003c\/b\u003e2019\u003cb\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eSize:\u003c\/b\u003e 750ml\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eABV:\u003c\/strong\u003e 15.2%\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eVarietal:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan\u003e Merlot\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eCountry\/Region:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan\u003e United States, Napa\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c!-- split --\u003e\n\u003ch4\u003eDetailed Description\u003c\/h4\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe 2019 Blueline Estate Merlot opens with mandarin orange oil, dark sour cherry and black plum aromatics.
