Winemaker Notes

"Always classy, this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Malbec shows richness and complexity. The flavors change constantly, suggesting blackberries, sweet plums, espresso, herbs and chocolate. The tannins are a wonder, soft and gentle."
-Wine Enthusiast

Since 1978, Marlstone has been produced from a specific block of designated Alexander Valley vineyards. Originally, Marlstone was a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot until the more recent introduction of several other Bordeaux varieties — Malbec, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. In the spring, after all the red wines have completed malolactic fermentation and have been racked several times, we evaluate the samples of each wine from the Marlstone vineyard and determine which ones exhibit the rich flavors and elegant balance that are the hallmark of Marlstone. The varietal makeup of the blend differs from vintage to vintage.

Marlstone is designed to be an elegant satisfying wine and this vintage is no exception. The addition of Malbec to this year's blend enhances the wine's forward fruit character, while the Cabernet Franc contributes a rich spicy quality. The result is a fruit forward wine that shows the familiar ripe black cherry, smooth mid-palate and long oak driven finish that we have come to expect in the Marlstone wine.

Food Recommendations: Serve the Marlstone with roasted beef, lamb or pork. A rich lamb stew over polenta will also work very well with this wine.

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.
