Deep purple-black colored, it delivers great intensity of crushed blackberries, warm plums and black currant cordial scents with wafts of underbrush, cinnamon toast and charcoal. The palate is medium to full-bodied, firm and grainy with a good core of fruit and a savory finish.

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.
