Honig, Sauvignon Blanc Reserve, Rutherford, Napa Valley, USA 2011
17.5pts/20 (91/100pts)
Louis Honig planted Sauvignon Blanc here in the 1960s. In this wine, fruit from those vines are complemented by Muscat and Semillon. It’s full of green pepper, pear drop and tropical fruits on the nose while the palate shows a spicy note and a dry, balanced, refreshing finish.
