Honig, Bartolucci Vineyard, Cabernet Sauvignon, St Helena, 2017

Sale price£155.00


Located at the base of Spring Mountain on the west side of St. Helena, this vineyard has been farmed by the Bartolucci family for three generations. With its well-drained soil and gentle slopes, this vineyard is perfect for growing Cabernet Sauvignon. Michael Honig had long-coveted this vineyard and when word spread that the long-term lease was soon to expire he was determined that Honig should take on the lease. Discovering the diner where the Bartolucci family routine met for an early breakfast, Michael started to frequent it regularly. Making their acquaintance he was able to convince them of his plans, and the result wine is proof of the wisdom of their decision. Boysenberry, black cherry, and violet notes wrapped in vanilla, caramel and toasty oak. Round, silky-rich mid-palate, cocoa powder and black tea textures on the finish.
