Clos du Bois Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The finished Clos du Bois Cabernet Sauvignon wine exhibits deep, berry flavors, a peppery character and a subtle overlay of oak. Great with hamburgers, steak or rich, meat-sauced pasta dishes.

  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 opened this bottle late with my girl due to the fact it was the only thing I had in the house. We each had a glass. I put the cork on the bottle and left it for two days. On the second day I had dinner and, the pairing was not a factor, but let me say that this wine was so smooth, full of dark berry flavors, easy to enjoy. I say go ahead and get yourself a bottle. Let it breath... Let it breath
