Honig Napa Valley 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon, $28.83-$35.99, 92+ points, begins as a deep-dark ruby red trending purple, while meeting the leggy glass wall clear.
With the beautiful color and a beautiful aroma of cedar, spearmint, sweet red cherry, toasty black cherry, and chocolate notes, this Cabernet can't help but excel on your palate.
Nearly full bodied, luscious with good acidity and satin-like tannin, Honig greets the wine lover with a bounty of pleasure, having verdant black fruit, crisp red cherry, violets, black licorice, and fine savory notes.
Finishes fair on the trailing palate with a hint of plum, spice, and a touch of alcohol (14.5%).
Under thirty dollars, this wine is one to impress your friends, and who knows, make new ones!
