Product description
The Honig Family purchased their 68-acre vineyard in Rutherford in 1964 and sold the grapes they grew to neighbouring wineries. In 1980, the family tried to produce their own Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc to great acclaim. Michael Honig took over management of the winery in 1984 at the age of 22. In 1987, the Honigs made their first Cabernet Sauvignon. Under Michael Honig's direction, the winery has grown from a small "garage winery" to a 25-person operation. Using solar power and sustainable farming methods, winemaker Kristin Belair focuses on two varietals: Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon. This focus allows her to produce handcrafted wines that truly express the vineyard.

The aromas and flavours of this Cabernet Sauvignon are a perfect balance of plum and raspberry fruit characters enhanced by warm cinnamon, nutmeg and crème caramel from ageing in French and American oak. The wine has a full, rich mid-palate followed by medium-weight tannins and bright fruit on the finish.

92 Points - James Suckling

A very aromatic red, offering baking spices, such as cinnamon, cloves and anisette, and notes of ripe blackcurrants, plums and dark chocolate. Full-bodied with soft tannins and a ripe yet vibrant and juicy fruit core. Long, warming finish.
