2010 Honig Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

Winemaker's Notes

An elegant, balanced Cabernet with flavors of black cherry, plum, and black tea, and hints of nutmeg, allspice, cassis, vanilla, and anise. The broad mid-palate is rich, the finish is long, and the tannins are lush.

    (From 2006 Vintage) Although leading with appealing, medium-deep aromas of ripe currants and forest-floor spice, this bottling wanders just a bit off the track as its likeable fruit loses a step and is passed at the finish by coarsening tannins. To be sure, time is required, and four or five years is the minimum wait, but we would be more comfortable about setting a few bottles aside if it showed a bit more fruity stamina.
