Clos du Bois Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County 2005
Wine Tasting Notes The Marlstone has a deep Bing cherry color and aromas of ripe red fruit, plums, blackberries, mocha, nutmeg and chocolate. Its an opulent red, velvety in the mouth, with dense plum, blackberry, blueberry, mineral and spice flavors finishing with superlative balance and hints of cedar and vanilla.
Very heavy and could use an hour or so of decanting. Notes of menthol, currant and cherries.
Purchased at local wine shop for $11.95. Good value. Aromas of black berries and spice. Very nice deep red color. Well-balanced with dark berries and mild spice with a hint of vanilla. Smooth finish.
Pretty good wine..... would be a good buy at 11 or 12$...... Not at all filled with the bitter acidic tases of tannons that you would expect from a 2-3 year old wine. Not an overpowering wine with a ton of taste.... so would be good with food instead of just drinking on its own. Oddly enough I opened this bottle and let it sit for 3 days and came back to it and thought it was better. Probably also of note is that I was drinking milk on day 3 before I started drinking the wine.... maybe I should always drink milk before wine.
We found this on sale for $18 and recognized it as the same wine served at our Country Club for $7 a glass. We always enjoy this wine.
We found it on sale for $12 and we tend to like several of the Clos du Bois wines. I found it very enjoyable as a before dinner glass.

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc, this wine is intense and concentrated. Flavors of currant and wild berries are balanced with firm tannins and good acidity. A unique and delicious blend of flavors.
A blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot. It has the same elegance as the 1996, but additional substance, a more layered texture as well as excellent cherry and currant fruit, with an exuberant, medium to full-bodied palate. It should drink well for 10ndash;12 years.
Supple and harmonious, with smooth-textured currant, cedar, vanilla and sage notes that flow easily on the palate, holding the fruit complexity and finishing with ripe, integrated tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2009.

The 2005 Briarcrest marries suave, blockbuster structure with elegant fruit and stellar varietal appeal, making it as much a cellar selection as a natural fit for today’s table. On the nose, it pairs complex aromas of cassis, blackberry essence, violets, and lavender with powerful notes of graphite, anise, dark chocolate, cedar, espresso, toast, and tobacco, for maximum impact. On the palate, the wine delivers full fruit flavors and structured tannins before a lengthy finish, which wraps up with notes of tobacco, cassis, and toast.
