The 2018 Honig Cabernet Sauvignon nicely defines this grape variety in the Napa Valley. This wine offers attractive aromas and flavors of black fruit, oak, and licorice. Pair it with slices of grilled ribeye in a toss with garden-fresh greens. (Tasted: April 27, 2021, San Francisco, CA)

Bright and open in feel, with damson plum and red currant notes, laced with savory and bay leaf details, ending with a mix of red tea, singed cedar and sanguine echoes. Atypical, for fans of a leaner style. Drink now through 2030.

The base 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley showed beautifully, with lots of darker currant and blackberry-like fruit supported by spicy oak, dried herbs, and a touch of loamy earth. Medium-bodied on the palate, it’s nicely balanced, with solid mid-palate depth, moderate tannins, and a clean, lengthy finish. This is pure, classic, well-made Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon that has loads of character and should drink nicely for 10-12 years.
Honig Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon offers bright blackberry, red plum, and raspberry fruit with notes of cranberry, black tea, spice, and coriander seed. Luscious and balanced, with toasty oak and a long finish.
