User Reviews for Clos du Bois Tempranillo Alexander Valley Reserve

Winemaker's Notes:

With a dark ruby red hue, the 2002 Alexander Valley Reserve Tempranillo fills the wine glass with scents of blueberry, red currant, plum, vanilla and a hint of oak. Its flavors complement the aromas with the addition of coffee and spice wrapped in a rich, supple mouth-feel that leads to a long, lingering finish. The 2002 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. With ideally ripe fruit our plan was to affect this wine as little as possible. After completing fermentation in stainless steel tanks, we transferred the wine into oak for 21 months to soften tannins in this multi-dimensional, complex wine.
