Special Occasion Wines Worth The Price


« Prev Next » 16 of 21
A delicious, splurge worthy bottle of wine to purchase for yourself or a loved one is the HG III Red blend from Napa Valley cult winery, Hourglass Wine.  Hourglass specializes in small-batch, estate-grown wines made from Bordeaux varieties. I’m particularly fond of their Hourglass estate vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon as well as the Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and Cabernet Sauvignon wines made from their Blueline estate vineyard. In 2012, Hourglass produced its first blend; a beautifully crafted, appealing, and accessible wine composed of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec. The wine retails for $50. And even though you can find ripe flavors and ample up-front fruit for half that amount, the HG III’s exceptional length, lovely berry-driven depth of flavor, great acid backbone, and focus are worth the extra $25. I have personally found attention to detail and a dedication to quality in every glass when it comes to this producer. If they are not already on your wine radar, I recommend putting them on it. And in case you didn’t know, a lovely bottle of wine makes an excellent Christmas gift. No need to unwrap, just uncork and enjoy, my friends!
