The flagship Hourglass Estate Cabernet vineyard was acquired by Jeff Smith’s father Ned in 1976, where the Hourglass vineyard came into prominence in the 90’s. Its rocky Hambright soil encourages small berries of intense concentration and earthy minerality. Nestled between the Mayacamas and Vaca mountain ranges, cooling breezes bottleneck at the vineyard, preserving natural acidity for perfect tensional balance to the fruit's richness. The vineyard is an Eastern facing 4 acres of See Clone Cabernet Sauvignon between the two highways on the valley floor. Produced since the 1997 inaugural vintage.
