2006 Honig Cabernet Sauvignon – Napa Valley Gary Thomas July 19, 2010 Tasting Notes 1 Comment Nose of blackberry, cocoa, cinnamon, and even a bit of oil (but that is perhaps because I have BP on the brain). Immediately approachable with soft, not chewy, tannins – beef tenderloin as opposed to beef jerky – and plummy fruit. Silken finish, if a tad short. All in all, a stunning wine for the money. WHO: Honig Vineyard and Winery WHAT: Cabernet Sauvignon (95%), with minute quantities of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc WHERE: Napa Valley, California WHEN: 2006 HOW MUCH: $35 http://wellesleywinepress.com Robert Dwyer Nice note David. I haven’t had the 06 but thought the 05 and especially the 07 were stunning. And well-priced to boot. Their pricier Bartolucci bottling is also quite impressive. Taking this all together: Honig is at the top of my list of outstanding Napa Cab value plays right now. Even out in front of Chappellet I think.
