Overview

A northern California Merlot.  This should be enough to say about this great bottle from Sonoma.  But it is also important to note that the fruit for Clos du Bois's classic Merlot comes from vineyards within Sonoma County's Alexander and Dry Creek Valleys and that it is aged for 18 months in oak. They then add a little bit of Cabernet Sauvignon to spice it up a little. The end result is a complex and well-structured wine full of ripe plums and berry aromas and flavors, with a touch of spice.  And the best part, it sells on average for under $20.00.  Bravo!
