Heavenly Honig: A Taste of Excellence in 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon

The Honig Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 is a vintage to behold! This is a stunning example of California Cabernet Sauvignon that has been produced by the Honig family, who have been in the winemaking business for over 30 years.

The 2016 vintage is a testament to the quality of their craftsmanship, as it has been heralded as one of the finest vintages for California Cabernet Sauvignon in recent memory. The favorable conditions during the growing season gave rise to wines that are balanced, powerful and precise. The grapes were harvested in waves, allowing producers to carefully considr when exactly to pick them in order to extract maximum flavor and complexity.

Michael Honig, grandson of the original Honig makers, took over management of the vineyard and winery at just 22 years old. Since then, other members of his family such as Regina Weinstein, Steven Honig and Stephanie Honig have joined him in making this iconic wine. In 1989 they began producing small amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon and it has grown into an internationally renowned brand ever since.

The 2016 vintage is a must-have for any serious connoisseur's cellar! It possesses all of the signature characteristics associated with California Cabernets from this era – such as deep blackberry and cassis flavors with hints of tobacco and cedar – but also adds its own unique character thanks to the meticulous effort put in by Michael Honig and his family. This wine will age gracefully for many years if stored properly, evolving over time into an even more complex bottle!
