Lovely red fruit characters of pomegranate, cassis and cherry are nuanced by riper tones of plum and chocolate. The wine is dense, with deep tannins enhanced by notes of fennel, vanilla and lovey notes of caramel and graphite originating from oak barrel aging. While drinkable now, this wine will cellar well through 2027 and perhaps longer.

The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is blended of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Petit Verdot, 4% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc and 2% Malbec. 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.

This red offers a nice display of crushed plum and loganberry fruit along with singed mesquite and licorice root hints. A touch brambly and toothy through the finish, but good energy overall keeps this going. Drink now through 2027. 17,450 cases made.

Honig's 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is lush and forward. Dark cherry, mocha, spice, tobacco and chocolate flesh out in a plump, juicy wine to drink now and over the next handful of years.
