Winemaker's Notes:

The 1999 Sonoma County Zinfandel has wonderful aromas of raspberry and vanilla. Rich and full-bodied this wine shows forward fruit flavors of jammy blackberry that is followed by hints of vanilla, black pepper, smoky cherry, coffee and toasty oak characters. The tannins are soft and round leading to a silky mouthfeel and a long lingering finish.

Food Recommendations: The forward fruit and spicy qualities of this Zinfandel will wold up well to grilled sausages and mildly spicy dishes. Try it with our favorite pizza.

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.
