Honig Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2007
RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
a rich silky, dark chocolate approach, luscious dark fruit and cocoa, wonderful balance and structure
Mild to medium blackberry perfume nose. Smoke, cocoa, currant, soil, raspberry, and dark fruit on the mid palate. Low key, satisfying finish with active but not overpowering tannins. This really came together after about an hour in the glass. 90-91 point napa cab, and at this price point that's pretty good value.
Very different for my tastes. I wouldn't say that it was bad....just way too sweet in the tannins dept. Not my thing.
Had this with filet mignon for a friends birthday. Excellent!
Very nice cab for around 30 bucks. Even better with 3-4 years cellaring.
This wine exceeded my expectations. I found it truly a wine to savor... all the descriptions of raspberry or cherry or what have you disappear when you really have the wine in your nose and mouth. All I can say is wonderful1

A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2007 Honig Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml
Marked by herb, dill, cedar, sage and dried currant flavors. Full-bodied and well-structured, both supple and tight at points, showing its subtle tannic strength on the finish. Drink now through 2017. 15,000 cases made. -JL It lacks the charm of what is clearly a better vintage, the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon (at $30 less a bottle, that's worth noting). A blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc, the 2007 is a winner. It is a luscious, sweetly tannic, classic Napa Cabernet offering notes of white chocolate, black currants and spice box, and a medium-bodied, supple, sexy style. Drink it over the next 7-10 years. A pretty good Cab that shows plenty of richness. May lack a bit in nuance, but on the other hand, a little cellaring could benefit. As currently constructed, it's rich and forward in berry-cherry fruit and oak, with lots of spices, and tastes a bit jammy-sweet. Honig's single-vineyard Cabs always seem much better than their generic Napa Valley. S.H.
Somehow Honig's well-made, organic Napa wines have managed to stay under the radar, but this Cabernet is certainly worth discovering: it has a deep, ruby-red color and a complex bouquet. On the palate, we got flavors of black cherry, cocoa, spice, and green tea. This is aged for 20 months in American oak barrels, only 30% of which are new. Well-balanced and well-structured.
