The 2019 growing season experienced a wet spring that slightly delayed budbreak and consistently mild conditions that continued through harvest. As a result, the fruit experienced longer hangtimes, gradually accumulating sugar, flavor concentration and optimal balance.

This deep ruby red Merlot showcases aromas of dark fruit, mocha and toasted oak. Notes of blackberry, plum, and black cherry with hints of vanilla and baking spice are unveiled on the rich, silky palate.
History

Working with a family of trusted growers from some of the best vineyards across California, each vintage is crafted to achieve balance, intensity, and true varietal character. Lush fruit flavors and a juicy, supple palate are the hallmarks of the Clos du Bois style.

Delicious

I am far from a wine expert but this bottle of wine to me is absolutely delicious. Very smooth and enjoyable. My friends agreed too. My favourite red so far.

Successful choice

Chose this to go with Christmas dinner catering for both vegetarians and meat eaters. It went down well being smooth but also complex enough to be interesting.
