Dark hue, the 2009 “Bon Passe” Cabernet exudes intense black stone notes and touches of violets on the nose. The full-bodied palate is rich and well-layered with black stone fruit, plum and black currants with hints of toffee and chocolate flavors. This elegant, yet mouth filling Cabernet showcases silky tannins and finishes with elegance and lengthy wild blackberry notes. This wine has the flavors and suppleness to be enjoyed on its own while maintaining an elegance that will complement many foods.
