Hourglass is a small family owned and operated estate and winery located in Calistoga and designed by world class architect Olle Lundberg. Winemaker Tony Biagi uses 91% Sauvignon Blanc and 9% Semillon here that is fermented in stainless steel tank then sees a combination of barrel and more steel for the aging. This is a recipe for a lot of refreshing complexity and a crazy long finish. Even if you are someone that is "mediocre" on Sauvignon Blanc, or even worse, if you are a skeptic... try this. It is not what you'd expect and it over delivers for its class and for Napa Valley!
The 2019 pairs well with west coast oysters, goat cheeses, or grilled chicken with lemon butter
