Honig Vineyard & Winery

Cabernet Sauvignon
Rutherford

5 cases produced

Highlights

  • Your wine is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
  • It was crafted using Honig estate fruit
  • The fruit was sourced from Block 5 of our Rutherford vineyard, which was planted in 2013
  • Aging 22 months in new French oak barrels

Grown in Block 5B of our Rutherford vineyard, planted in 2013. It is a young block and is delivering great promise. The bilateral cordon is supported on a leaning ballerina trellis, where the afternoon sun side of the canopy can be dropped lower to protect the fruit from hot afternoon temperatures. The vines are leafed very soon after set so that the fruit is exposed to the sun early and can develop deep color and mature tannins and flavors. Aged for 22 months in new French oak barrels.


Wine Facts

  • Single vineyard wine
  • Sustainably produced
  • Wine is 100% estate grown and bottled
