Today, we are excited to link up with Kids & Cabernet for Wino Wednesday!
I shared this wine, Honig Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, a couple of months ago in my Girl's Weekend post. For quite some time, I have been loyal to the pinot noir grape. I am not saying that I never drink anything else but if I am buying or ordering chances are, I am picking a pinot noir. On this particular night, most of us were having filets so I decided to order a cabernet sauvignon. It was so delicious and made me second guess my pinot streak! I have had one bottle of this since our dinner at Bijoux. Right out of the bottle, I was a little disappointed. After some time and at the right temperature, it proved to be as good as I remembered it.
Also linking up with the beautiful ladies at Pumps & Pushups.
Honig Napa Vallet Cabernet Sauvignon 2012Plenty of ripe, wild berry and plum aromas and flavors, framed by vanilla, spice, and toasty oak. Lush mid-palate tannins flow into a lengthy finish accented by bright fruit.Blend: 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Cabernet Franc, 7% Petit Verdot
Wine Spectator - "On solid footing, with sassy tannins, this offers a core of mocha, blackberry and dark berry flavors that are pure, dense and chewy, accented by tobacco leaf and cigar box notes. Drink now through 2023. "
It's Willamette, Dammit!
