Rating: 85/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the November 2010 issue. In aroma, this wine matches or even exceeds its mate above, but wines cannot live by nose alone, and it is in the mouth that both the fruit and richness come up short. What starts as a nice bit of frontal red cherry character turns dry and curt by mid-palate, and Merlot's attractive side is lost to the blunting tannins and pushy acidity that show up in many 2006s.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.

Like many of the Clos du Bois wines, this is textbook. There's everything you expect in a Merlot - black cherries, vanilla, toast, dried herbs, coffee. On the other hand, also like a textbook, it lacks the drama and excitement to push it into the next class.

Displays a soft, ripe berry fruit character that is balanced nicely by the toasty vanilla oak flavors. The fruit-forward flavors of this Merlot complement a wide variety of foods. Try it with a traditional meatloaf, hearty stew or lasagna with sweet Italian sausage.

Focused, with very good intensity to the currant, plum and malt flavors, highlighted by cedary oak, espresso bean, lead pencil and firm tannins. Drink now through 2008.

Here's a nice drinking young wine that's dry, fruity and soft. It has cherry-berry flavors, with a streak of herbs, mint and a touch of oak.

Ripe, juicy and easy to drink, with black raspberry, spice and toasty vanilla notes and soft, supple flavors. Drink now.
