  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

Drinking window: Drink between 2010 and 2013 (based on 1 user opinion) Community Tasting Notes (average 89 pts. and median of 89 pts. in 4 notes) - Tasted by MCrawford on 7/18/2011 & rated 88 points: Nice wine. A little herbal still, but day two was much better. Medium body, medium finish. Black fruit on the nose and through the palate with hints of mocha and chalk dust. Very raisin-y when first opened, but this blew off with the first glass. (724 views)

Tasting Notes:

Prime Alexander Valley grapes from superb hillside and benchland vineyards form the core of the wine's depth and character. A dark ruby red color, this lush and deeply flavored Merlot bursts with aromas of violet, baking spices, mocha, ripe plum, blackberry, and intense black cherry. On the palate, it exhibits a full-bodied mouthfeel with delicious flavors of black cherry, mocha and toasty oak and finishes with the velvety, luxurious mouthfeel that marks fine Merlot.
