Clos du Bois Tempranillo Alexander Valley Reserve 2008
I am a fan of bold red wines. Even so, I like to step out and try something new. Clos du Bois 2005 Sonoma Reserve Tempranillo was just the ticket. This wine was soft and approachable. Soft tannins with good concentration of dark fruit notes like black berry or cherry.Add winemaker's notes

Wine Tasting NotesDeep, dark ruby red in color, this beautiful wine displays forward blueberry, red current, blackberry, vanilla, plum, roasted oak aromas. Its mouthfeel is elegant, with well-defined plum and blueberry fruit flavors and hints of espresso. Its firm tannins and overall balance and structure make this an age-worthy wine.
