Honig 2007 Campbell Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon (Rutherford)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $75
This 100% Cabernet’s dark, saturated color testifies to its extracted ripeness and richness. It’s a gigantic wine, buried at the moment under smoky oak, but tremendous underneath in blackberry, cherry, currant, sweet herb, violet and cured meat flavors. A big success even in this vintage. Now, with decanting, and through 2019.  — S.H.  (12/1/2010)

Honig 2005 Mitchell Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon (Rutherford)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $75
From a vineyard on Rutherford’s cooler, western bench comes this dry, spicy, firmly tannic young 100% Cabernet. It’s aggressive and muscular now, with a hard, dusty astringency. But the rich core of red currants, black cherries, mocha, violets and cedar strongly suggests ageability. Better after 2011.  — S.H.  (6/1/2009)

Honig 2004 Mitchell Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon (Rutherford)

  1. $85
Made in an appealingly ripe, polished style, this 100% Cab has intense flavors of ripe cherries, currants, spices and cedar, with a dusty sprinkle of dried herbs. It shows the elegant balance and ageworthiness of a fine Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon. Now through 2012, at least.  — S.H.  (12/15/2007)

Honig 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley)

  1. $40
Honig’s basic Napa Valley Cabernet is consistently rich and drinkable at a young age. This 2008 is their best in many years, showing ripe blackberry, black currant and dark chocolate flavors, grounded with a firm minerality. Give this elegant young Cabernet a few hours in a decanter.  — S.H.  (3/1/2012)

Honig 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $40
This shows classic Napa Cabernet flavors of ripe blackberries and black currants, with a nice herbaceousness and a balanced overlay of toasty oak. It’s pretty tannic now, although it’s still enjoyable. It should gain bottle complexities over the next six years or so.  — S.H.  (8/1/2012)

Honig 2005 Sauvignon Blanc (Napa Valley)

  • Best Buy
  1. $15
. Restaurateurs will be interested in this wine for its food-friendliness and price. All stainless-steel fermented, it’s totally dry and very crisp in acidity, with complex lemongrass, gooseberry and vanilla flavors, and a pink grapefruit finish. It’s the kind of wine that will go well with almost everything. Great wine, great value.  — S.H.  (5/1/2007)

Honig 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley)

  1. $22
From the Rutherford section of Napa, here’s another fine example of the emerging quality of the ’96 vintage. Excellent aromas of brambly fruit, mint, cedar and cola introduce a velvety, balanced body. All parts are in sync with each other. Soft on the palate and smooth and light through the finish, it’s a Cabernet that’s easily approachable now, and well priced to boot.  — M.S.  (10/1/1999)
