Food Pairings for Clos du Bois Merlot Sonoma County
Vintage The growing season began with a short rainstorm at budbreak followed by a two-week heat spell. This impaired bloom set and reduced overall crop size, leading to concentrated flavors in the berries at harvest time. As the summer months progressed, temperatures remained mild with cool, fog-laden nights and warm, sunny afternoons. Harvest progressed at a normal clip and the fruit quality was excellent Winemaking The wine was fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel on the skins for 5 to 10 days. After malolactic fermentation was complete, the wine was racked off the lees and aged in a combination of French and American oak barrels for 12 months. Winemaker Notes This 2002 Merlot has dense black cherry red color and aromas of raspberry, black cherry, vanilla, sweet tobacco, toasty oak. It’s rich with bright blueberry and black cherry fruit flavors and a supple mouth-feel. Slight hints of oak spice and fruit come together leading to a deliciously long finish.
