Clos du Bois Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County 2003
Briarcrest is bottled 100% Cabernet Sauvignon a rather rare find, as Cabernet is nearly always blended with other varietals. Alexander Valley is one of the few regions that can successfully produce a 100% Cabernet wine, because of the characteristic lush fruity character and soft, round, supple tannins of the Cab grown here.A richly textured, smooth wine, Briarcrest offers thick blackberry, dark cherry and cassis flavors, harmonized with toasty oak, cedar, tobacco and chocolate aromas. Briarcrest is intense, big and fruity in its youth and can be bottle-aged up to 15 years, developing added smoothness and rich complexity.
What a wonderful blend of cab, merlot, cab franc, malbec and petit verdot. Smooth. Rich. Loved it.
By far one of the best I have efer had.
aerated, decanted and let sit about 30 minutes... good fruit and structure... a little spice... great wine onn a chilly, windy night!
