The aromas and flavors 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 that is followed by medium weight tannins and bright fruit on the finish.
Blend: 83.7% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5.9% Petit Verdot, 3.9% Merlot, 3.7% Malbec 1.5% Cabernet Franc, 1.3% Petit Syrah

About Honig Winery
We purchased our Rutherford Vineyard in 1964, and began producing wine in 1980. In 1984, at the age of 22, Michael Honig took over management of the vineyard and winery. With the help of a handful of family members and a staff of dedicated employees, what began as a small “garage” winery has today become a successful family enterprise, with everyone working collaboratively to run an inspiring and socially responsible business. At Honig we believe it is our responsibility to preserve resources and sustain the environment. Our family and employees have been committed to environmentally sound practices for decades. Our Napa Green and California Sustainable Winegrowing Association certifications are but one component of an overall sustainable culture encompassing our vineyard, winery and business.
