The 2018 Honig Cabernet Sauvignon nicely defines this grape variety in the Napa Valley. TASTING NOTES: 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.

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.
