Winemaker's Notes:

To craft the Cabernet for our Appellation Reserve Series we look to the famed Alexander Valley – best known for its outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. Our Alexander Valley Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is a fine example of the excellent growing characteristics of this valley, which makes up the heart of the Sonoma County winegrowing region. Brimming with lush velvety blackberry and vanilla flavors, this Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits rich aromas of black cherry and currants, with the round and supple tannins typical of Alexander Valley Cabernet. Rich and chewy, it is plush and smooth on the palate with perfectly integrated oak.

About Clos du Bois Winery:

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.
