HONIG SAUVIGNON BLANC 2007
The Grade: OUTSTANDING. The Mojo: I have been a fan of Michael Honig and his wines for years. If ever there was a more dependable, more enjoyable Napa Sauvignon Blanc year-in-and-year-out than the Honig Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley 2007, I’ve not found it. The wine speaks as if it were a classic white Graves, full of poised minerality, Meyer lemon, hints of star fruit, lime zest and green tea notes. I recommend that if you LOVE Sauvignon Blanc, and you HAVEN’T had this wine yet, try it and you will see that this wine is truly unbeatable for Sauvignon Blancs under $20.
