Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 14.5%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

#89 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2012

Blackberry, plum, and cherry notes are framed with hints of exotic spices, and perfectly balanced by sweet oak. The palate is full and rich with structured tannins and a long finish. Enjoyable upon release and can be cellared through 2018 and beyond.

Critical Acclaim

"Dense and tight, with a firm core of loamy earth, dried dark berry, spice and cedar. Opens up to black licorice and anise seed notes, ending with chewy tannins. Best from 2013 through 2023."
92 Points

"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."

In 1987, the Honigs made their first Cabernet Sauvignon. Under...

Learn About Napa Valley

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
