The 2009 Bon Passe Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is an elegant, balanced wine from the Oak Knoll district of Napa Valley. Dark in color, this Cabernet exudes intense red cherry notes and touches of violets on the nose. The palate is rich and layered with flavors of blueberries, plum and red currants with hints of toffee and cigar box. Its firm tannins finish with elegance and lengthy wild black berry notes.

Wine Enthusiast says ‘Darms Lane is one of those wineries that travels under the radar, but it really is worthy of your attention. With this superb 2009 Cab from their Oak Knoll vineyard, they’re continuing a string of successful bottlings…the wine is rich, smooth and tannic, with a deep core of blackberry and currant.
