Honig 2016 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon - Magnum (1.5L)
Bright blackberry, red plum, and raspberry fruit with notes of cranberry, black tea, spice, and coriander seed. Luscious and balanced, with toasty oak and a long finish.
The blueberry and dark-chocolate aromas are very attractive and follow through to a full body, round and juicy tannins and a hazelnut aftertaste. Needs a year or two to soften the tannins, but already very attractive.
COMMENTARY: The 2016 Honig is an excellent example of top-tier Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and comes that is quite affordable. TASTING NOTES: This wine is sturdy and built. Its aromas and flavors of blackcurrants and anise should pair it well with a roasted pork loin roast. (Tasted: April 9, 2019, San Francisco, CA)
