Clos du Bois Cabernet Sauvignon

Wine Profile

Tasting Notes
75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, and 7% Petite Verdot were blended with small amounts of Cabernet Franc and Malbec.

Ruby red in color, this Cabernet Sauvignon displays complex aromas of cherry and cassis. With hints of toasty oak, bittersweet chocolate, and flavors of dark berry, its concentrated flavor is enhanced by supple tannins.

Vineyard Notes
2011 was a challenging vintage on California’s North Coast. We had similar conditions to 2010, with a cool, wet spring, and above-average rainfall into June. Rainfall during bloom resulted in a poor set, thinning the crop to less than 15% of normal. The light crop was a blessing in the cool, late season, as a light crop tends to ripen more quickly. A series of mid-October rain events presented further challenges, bringing harvest to a rapid close. The resultant wines reflect the cooler vintage, with lively acidity and moderate alcohol levels, favoring finesse and elegance over power.
Food Pairing Notes
This robust Cabernet Sauvignon is a fool-proof pairing with grilled meats and veggies or with gamier meats like squab or wild boar.
