Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is ruby/purple with notes of plum and blackcurrant with the attractive aromatics followed by a medium-bodied wine. It starts off well and shortens ever so slightly in the finish. This is certainly good, stylish Cabernet Sauvignon, but this is the high end in terms of quality. (RP) Inner quote mark (10/2014)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark On solid footing, with sassy tannins, this offers a core of mocha, blackberry and dark berry flavors that are pure, dense and chewy, accented by tobacco leaf and cigar box notes. Drink now through 2023. (Web-2014) Inner quote mark

K&L Notes

Honig sources estate fruit from their sustainably farmed Rutherford vineyard as well as from some select Napa growers. The 2012 growing season was long and ideal with grapes reaching optimal ripeness before the autumn rains. The wine was aged for 18 months in 35% new American oak barrels before being blended with 7% Petit Verdot and 4% Cabernet Franc. From the winery: "Plenty of ripe, wild berry and plum aromas and flavors, framed by vanilla, spice,and toasty oak. Lush mid-palate tannins flow into a lengthy finish accented by bright fruit."

Plush, yet structured, integrated oak and tannins, a great bottle to pop and serve this year, or cellar for up to 12 years from now. Incredible balance and class. This is classic Napa Cab at an even more classic price!
