 Tasted by redman77 on 11/5/2011 & rated 90 points: Solid mid-high end calif cab. Well made and balanced. Not really my style but others very much enjoyed. (3254 views)
 Tasted by Vinicioso on 5/20/2011 & rated 91 points: This wine is drinking fabulously right now! Decanted for 30 mins WOW! (3230 views)
 Tasted by cweiss on 3/1/2011: Really quite deicious with "gobs" of sweet fruit but excellent balance. (3474 views)
 Tasted by mliszt on 12/5/2010 & rated 95 points: worth waiting for. high quyality medium price. you won't be disappointed (3596 views)
 Tasted by RobertDwyer on 3/16/2010 & rated 93 points: This was pretty darn good for my palate. Hard to say it was worth the money (and the baseline Honig Cab is pretty good). But it didn't disappoint and I enjoyed it very much. (4124 views)
 Tasted by Ekoostik on 6/14/2008 & rated 87 points: Straightfoward medium bodied cab with some nice fruit, but not nearly enough. There were some definate green notes, but not overpowering, and just not the overall mouthfeel an $80 Cab should have. I didnt buy it but would be disappointed at any more than $25. (2332 views)
 Tasted by ScottGoodwin on 5/28/2008: BIG fruit on the nose. Dry finish. Nice smooth tannins. Well integrated oak. Hint of dill. (2342 views)
 Tasted by hammie1234 on 2/10/2008 & rated 90 points: Robust and pleasant to drink. Round and gentle tanins. Always a crowd pleaser! (2419 views)
 Tasted by belmore on 1/30/2008 & rated 86 points: I'm having some trouble recollecting this one specifically, since we tasted several at Honig. I do remember not being overly impressed with any of them, however. Molly opinion was far more favorable than mine. I wonder if I just wasn't burnt out on tasting after 3 days of 7 wineries a day...

California Wines (Wine Institute of California)

California is one of the most diverse wine regions in the world, with almost 100 grape varieties grown in over 100 viticultural areas, including dozens of ­different microclimates and soil types, as well as a very individualistic set of ­winemakers, many with international experience, which adds to and deepens that diversity.
