Hourglass Sauvignon Blanc 2019
100% Sauvignon Blanc. Tony Biagi continues to do terrific work at Hourglass, where he and proprietor Jeff Smith have brought the wines back a bit from the more opulent style that preceded Biagi's arrival in 2012. This Sauvignon Blanc is a benchmark for the varietal in the entire valley. It is decidedly tropical but balanced, with notes of melon and starfruit. This is a winery that is going through a renaissance and should be tasted to be believed.
