Honig Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Bright and open in feel, with damson plum and red currant notes, laced with savory and bay leaf details, ending with a mix of red tea, singed cedar and sanguine echoes. Atypical, for fans of a leaner style. Drink now through 2030. 25,800 cases made.
The base 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley showed beautifully, with lots of darker currant and blackberry-like fruit supported by spicy oak, dried herbs, and a touch of loamy earth. Medium-bodied on the palate, it's nicely balanced, with solid mid-palate depth, moderate tannins, and a clean, lengthy finish. This is pure, classic, well-made Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon that has loads of character and should drink nicely for 10-12 years.
