2017, more complex than I remembered and also expected. Nice mid palate.

Tasty stuff, crisp with tart melon and dried citrus flavors, a consistent top performer! #wine #sauvignonblanc #napavalley

Best value sauv blanc from napa on the market. Reserve is incredible but this entry level is really lovely for a Sunday night, both to cook with and drink!

Tropical with notes of cantaloupe, pineapple with a creamy core. A little oily with bright acid.

This one was getting a little geriatric, but that being said, Honig is still the Sav Blanc I measure all others up against. Green apple, grass, some mineral. Paired with an orange roughy po’ boy.

In 1964 Honig Family purchased a 68-acre vineyard in Rutherford and sold their grapes to neighboring wineries. In 1980, Honig began producing their own Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc. Straw with citrus and soft earthy herb aromas. On the palate orange and grapefruit flavors with lemongrass tones, crisp and fresh. Good mouthfeel medium finish ending with lively acidity. Nice value.

Did a taste test with this vs a much more expensive sauv Blanc to prove a point. It worked. This won. Nuff said.
