Honig Sauvignon Blanc Rutherford 2008
Wine Spectator `Fragrant with perfumed notes to the pea blossom passion fruit and gooseberry flavors which are lively and spicy with good intensity and an almond skin finish. Drink now.` (07/09) A Best Buy Wine and Spirits `A softly structured white this Sauvignon has creamy scents of baked apple kumquat and mint.` (07/09)
Grapefruit and lime aromas, nice acidity and minerality great with the coconut shrimp/mango salso, a little white peach on palate, citrus fruit overall
Crisp with a light nose of lemon tarts. Soft sugars take the edge of the acidity and gives the wine a round mid palate. Nice
Honig is a nice lite crisp, dry, flinty, clean refreshing Sauvignon Blanc. This is a great white wine to go with fish or any seafood and chicken. Can't beat the price =)
Nice white wine and a great Sauvignon Blanc to open and drink on a nice warm day. Clean refreshingly crisp
External Reviews for Honig Sauvignon Blanc Rutherford
Honig produced 20,000 cases of 2002 Sauvignon Blanc, a crisp, fig, melon-filled white with an attractive fragrance, light to medium body, and an easy-going personality. Moreover, it is fairly priced. Drink it over the next year.
Ripe and concentrated, with a broad swath of melon, freshly cut hay, grass and fig flavors. Tangy grapefruit, lemon and orange overtones carry through the finish.
Honig is one of the leading practitioners of crisp, dry, flinty, refreshing Sauvignon Blanc. The 2003 Sauvignon Blanc Napa (which includes 5% Semillon) exhibits light to medium-bodied, elegant notes of lemon grass intermingled with melon, fig, and crushed rocks. It is a stylish, pure expression of Sauvignon to consume over the next 1-2 years.
With this wine, you get Napa Valley quality at a very reasonable price. The Honig family has long specialized in Sauvignon Blanc. Obviously they really know their varietal. This lush yet zippy wine sports a blend of citrus, melon, fig, herb and gooseberry flavors. Fresh, clean and long on the finish, it offers a seductive hint of honey at the end.
This fine Sauvignon Blanc producer has fashioned a light to medium-bodied 2004 Sauvignon Blanc Napa that offers crisp fig, mineral, and melon notes. This is an excellent Sauvignon to enjoy over the next 1-2 years.
Intense yet delicate, with a medley of lime skin, grapefruit, grass and cedar flavors underscored by pretty floral notes and a burst of green pear and fig. Drink now through 2006.
Very pale color. Pure aromas of white grapefruit, passion fruit, grass and ginger. Then fat and ripe, with an exotic hint of banana leavened by good dry minerality. Not really herbal but ultimately cool, classic, musky sauvignon that should go well with oysters. Honig began picking their small 2004 sauvignon crop on August 10!
