Winemaker's Notes:

Deep purple in color with a ruby red hue, this exceptionally well-balanced Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits ripe blackberry, cassis and plum fl avors, colored with a touch of mocha and coffee.

  Clos du Bois didn’t start small and build up like many other wineries - it started with a bang. When it produced its first vintage in 1974, it already had 520 acres under vine in Alexander Valley, part of Sonoma County. When Frank Woods was coming up with the name for his winery, he thought of “Woods Winery,” obviously named after himself, but his children had something else in mind. They were taking French at the time, and instead of “Woods Winery,” they thought of “Clos du Bois,” which loosely translates to “enclosure in the woods.” Obviously the name stuck, and Clos du Bois was born. Since then, Clos du Bois has come a long way. From 520 acres, the winery has expanded to 925 acres of their own, along with many partnerships with other wineries. Instead of partnering with a few, large vineyards, the winery works with many small- and medium-sized growers across numerous appellations. Most of the grapes it purchases from other vineyards are from Sonoma County, but some come from Coastal California as well. Erik Olsen, their current winemaker, joined in June 2003, and has since taken those grapes and made them into very well-received wines. Read less

I am rating the 2004 cab, north coast. Very fruity, clean, nice aftertaste. Not very bitter. Nice wine for everyday occasions

Charmingly nuanced with enticing tropical notes, Clos du Bois Sauvignon Blanc evokes lime blossoms, lemongrass, peach, grapefruit and honeysuckle. Pretty and assertive, it bows out with a clean finish.

Vibrant aromas of ripe blackberry, spice and cassis mingle with notes of vanilla and toasted oak on the nose. Full-bodied and velvety on the palate, the flavors are bright and juicy, with hints of ripe blackberry, plums and clove.The wine's finish combines fruit, oak and tannin in perfect balance.

"Our Cabernet Sauvignon ranks among our most popular Classics varietals. We carefully select the grapes to achieve the richness and balance associated with Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon. Up to four weeks of fermentation and maceration (time in contact with the grape skins) develops the optimum color and flavor in the wine, while aging in 60-gallon oak barrels adds softness and a light vanillin overtone. The finished wine exhibits deep, berry flavors, a peppery character and a subtle overlay of oak." -Winery

Following its brilliant, silver straw-yellow hue, this Chardonnay has intense primary aromas of apple blossom, ripe pear and sweet lemon drop, complemented by toasty oak, spice and cream. The wine's silky smooth texture is overlaid with bright juicy flavors of rich, ripe apple and pear, lingering into a fresh, satisfying finish. - Winery ** SOLD OUT **
