Winemaker's Notes:

Deep purple in color with a ruby red hue, this exceptionally well-balanced Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits perfectly ripe blackberry, cassis and plum flavors, colored with a touch of mocha and coffee, followed by a taste of well-integrated roasted oak with hints of cedar and cigar box. Its sweet, fruity entry is enhanced with a juicy mouthfeel, notes of savory herbs and supple, velvety tannins with concentrated fruit.

This balanced Cabernet would match romantically with grilled meats and veggies as well as any manner of wildly flavored meats, such as squab or wild boar.

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.
