Darm’s Lane Cabernet

 

Located in the southwestern bench lands of Napa Valley Darms Lane Estate lies in the iconic Oak Knoll District appellation. Linda’s Vineyard is the prime hillside vineyard at the estate and the Cabernet Sauvignon fruit that is grown here gives this unique wine both a dark garnet color, and and intriguing cherry wood aroma tinged with subtle hints of sage.

On the palate there are notes of ripe blackberries, cherries and dried fig. Very judicious use of oak give delicae structure to the fruit’s bright acidity, making it a fitting companion for delicately-seasoned fowl, game, or roasted root vegetables.
