This is from our June 3, 2015 News Fetch. Lew has run out of new wines and is totally over buying wines at retail that he has not tasted before. Too many dogs which equal too much wasted money and too many bottles poured into the vino hell hole in the garden.
Bright plum and dark berry flavors make this 2012 Honig Cabernet Sauvignon stand out from the Parker-ized sameness of so many Napa Valley Cabs.
Nice spice here along with vanilla toasty oak and a solid tannin backbone.
89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Cabernet Franc, 7% Petit Verdot. $36 retail.
