A pure expression of Cabernet with black cherry, plum and raspberry, wrapped in spicy French oak, cocoa and a hint of dried herbs. The mid-palate is broad and lush, while the finish is long, with perfectly structured tannins.
Boysenberry, black cherry, and violet notes wrapped in vanilla, caramel and toasty oak. Round, silky-rich mid-palate, cocoa powderand black tea textures on the finish. The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Bartolucci Vineyard from St. Helena is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in 100% new French oak. The wine has a dense ruby/purple color, sweet, pure black raspberry and blackcurrant fruit, medium to full body, supple tannins and complexity as well as elegance. This is a beauty and probably one of the strongest of Cabernet Sauvignons I have tasted from Honig.
