Clos du Bois
Clos du Bois Rouge Red Blend
Fruit for our Rouge Red Blend was sourced from select vineyards throughout California’s Central and North Coasts—blending Syrah, Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Merlot, and small amounts of other varietals to craft this hearty wine.
The wine was fermented on the skins in a stainless steel tank for eight days and pumped over three times per day. At the end of fermentation, most lots were pressed and racked onto oak to undergo malolactic fermentation. After, rack and return was performed to get the wine off heavy lees. The lots were aged in oak for 10 months. Individual wine lots were racked and blended together, then prepared for bottling
Deep ruby red in color, this charming red blend opens with aromas of black cherry and plum, with hints of sandalwood, vanilla, and brown spice. A mouthful of sweet fruit and full-bodied lushness follows, with a juicy, concentrated blackberry fruit entry balanced by milk chocolate and spice on the finish.
This rich, jammy blend will pair nicely with a wide range of foods, including steak, ribs, and hamburgers off the grill.
