Nice wine, deep fruit nose with a subtle oak and fruit flavor. It ends fruity with soft tannins and a cigaratte ash. I would purchase this one as a regular with red meat

While sourcing grapes from throughout Sonoma County, Clos du Bois does a rigorous selection of the very best lots for their Sonoma Reserve Cabernet. Limited strictly to Alexander Valley fruit, known for exceptional richness and character, this wine represents one of the best values of the region. A blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc, a portion of the fermented must is left on the skins for extended maceration up to 30 days. This draws out the additional flavor, softer tannins and intense color giving the wine richness and intensity. Aging for 18 months in 44% new oak barrels then adds the complexity and nuance that is so compelling in this lush Cab. From the super 2007 vintage, don't miss this incredible value.

Deep and inky in color, this wine offers aromas of cassis, plum and tobacco. Concentrated flavors of blackberry and nutmeg take over your palate, and a hint of sweet oak leads the way to a luscious aftertaste.

Exhibits deep, berry flavors, a peppery character and a subtle overlay of oak.

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.

Brimming with lush velvety blackberry and vanilla flavors, this wine exhibits rich aromas of black cherry and currants. Rich and chewy, it is plush and smooth on the palate with perfectly integrated oak. This rich, flavorful Cabernet longs to be paired with roasted or grilled beef.

This Cab is dry, fruity, soft and gentle, with extra nuances of complexity. It's deep in blackberry and chocolate flavors, and an intricately detailed balance of acids, tannins, alcohol and oak. Not an ager, but absolutely delicious from the get-go.

Winemaker's Notes:

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.
