  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

A simple, soft, fruit and one-dimensional Pinto that offers up slight flavors of raspberries, pepper and tobacco. Fully dry, with silky tannins and bracing acids, but it's hard to get over the anorexic profile.

There's a raw earthiness to this wine's beet, raspberry and mushroom scents, with their smoky nuances, but it turns richly fruity and spicy in the mouth. Has lovely Pinot texture.

This wine captures Pinot's silky, spicy qualities, although it's thin, light and basic. Some pretty notes of raspberry, smoke, sun-dried tomatoes, mushroom and chocolate and a nice, spicy intensity on the palate. The tannins are soft and light, and it snaps to a quick finish.

Expresses the most coveted characteristics of the variety: tropical fruit aromas with an underlying hint of citrus zest, and flavors of melon, sweet oak and citrus fruits on the palate. The luscious mouthfeel extends into a lengthy finish.

Soft but tightly structured, with herb, strawberry, dried cherry and tea flavors and pleasant toasted oak on the finish. Drink now.
