Honig Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Currant, plum and black raspberry aromas are intermingled with a mélange of black pepper, nutmeg, and a whisper of dried herbs. The aromas flow through to similar flavors on the pallet. Sweet oak pulls it all together, complementing the lush textures. This delicious, multifaceted wine can be enjoyed now and should age beautifully though 2029 and even through 2034. Drink one now and save one to savor later.
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. 25,800 cases made.
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.
