REGION: Alexander Valley, Sonoma County, CA
GRAPE: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec
ESTATE: When Clos du Bois was founded in 1974, Sonoma County was better known for its prunes, walnuts and dairy farms than for its wine grapes. With more soil types than France, Founder Frank Woods recognized the potential of Sonoma County as a world-class wine growing region, and it is here in Sonoma's Alexander Valley where Clos du Bois has been making outstanding wines for more than three decades. Woods' vision was to marry the best of California wines, which were rich, fruit forward and robust, with the best of French wines, which had an undeniable elegance. With a focus on sourcing the best quality grapes from Alexander Valley, Russian River Valley and the surrounding North Coast, the resulting collection of wines highlight the best of Sonoma County in a style that is both elegant and approachable - the signature of Clos du Bois.
TASTING NOTES: This wine has inky black color with a ruby red hue, complex aromas of plum, blueberry, and cassis, with savory herbs, mocha, leather, and cedar. In the mouth, the wine is rich and full bodied with exceptional balance. The tannins are ?rm but ripe, with a velvety texture, contributing length and richness to the ?nish.
