Winemaker's Notes:

The 2000 Clos du Bois Pinot Noir is an elegant wine that offers forward cherry and plum flavors highlighted by rich vanilla and toasty oak nuances and a soft supple texture.

Pinot Noir is a very versatile food wine — wonderful with dishes ranging from herbed chicken to peppercorn steak or freshly grilled salmon. The graceful flavors of this Pinot Noir also make a fine accompaniment to many vegetarian dishes.

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.
