Clos du Bois Merlot Sonoma County 2008
This Merlot is a deep, ruby red color with bold aromas of black cherry, ripe plums and red currant. The fruit aromas are complemented by hints of vanilla and spice. On the palate, balanced flavors of juicy black plums, mocha and a touch of tobacco make this a wine of structure and finesse. The wine ends beautifully with a velvety mouthfeel and long, rich finish.

We blend small amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon to add structure and complexity, which enlivens the subtle texture and plum-like fruitiness that is the hallmark of fine Merlot.
