Honig Cabernet Sauvignon 2018, 750 ml, Napa Valley, California

Fruit: 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot, 2% Merlot. Winemaking: The fruit for this wine comes from both sustainably farmed vineyard in Rutherford, and from local Napa Valley vineyards. Each vineyard block was harvested and made into an individual lot representing that block. The wines were pressed off the skins from 10 to 30 days after crushing. Bottled in June 2020. Aging: Aged for 18 months in French and American oak barrels. 29% new american oak, 17% new French oak, 54% used barrels. Tasting notes: 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.
