External Reviews for Clos du Bois Pinot Noir Sonoma County
Therersquo;s a raw earthiness to this winersquo;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 Pinotrsquo;s silky, spicy qualities, although itrsquo;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.
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 itrsquo;s hard to get over the anorexic profile.
Pinot Noir is a difficult wine to produce successfully. Clos du Bois uses the time-honored Burgundian techniques of small tank fermentation and aging in heavily toasted oak barrels. This process preserves the smooth, rich texture and subtle varietal flavors of the grape, producing aromas of crushed rose petals and cherries characteristic of the best Pinot Noirs.
Soft but tightly structured, with herb, strawberry, dried cherry and tea flavors and pleasant toasted oak on the finish. Drink now.
This Pinot Noir shows deep shades of black cherry in the glass, with classic aromas of strawberry, cherry, vanilla and hints of smokiness on the nose. The wine has a lush, silky texture that opens to flavors of cherry and strawberry. With a pleasing balance of oak, the wine integrates its bright fruit flavors beautifully on the palate.
Subtle, smoky nose, somewhat tight. Rich, concentrated black cherry flavor. Classic Pinot. Soft tannins make for easy drinking. not complex, but very friendly and accessible now, and could improve for another year or two.
