CLOS DU BOIS CLASSICS

Clos du Bois Classic wines are consumer favorites that reflect the winery’s accessible and refined
winemaking style. Working with a family of trusted growers and more than 500 acres of estate
vineyards in the heart of Sonoma County, 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.
vineyards
In 2009, winemaker Gary Sitton sourced fruit for this wine from throughout California, using
Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Charbono to craft this
hearty wine. Harvest took place September and October 2009, with grapes registering at an
average of 24.5° brix.

VINTAGE
Moderate temperatures throughout the spring and summer made 2009 a very good growing
season. Weather during set was good and rain in early May helped to develop a lush, healthy
canopy that was beneficial in ripening the crop. No extended heat spikes over 100 degrees during
the key ripening period between July and September allowed the vines to continuously mature
fruit. The lack of extreme temperatures resulted in higher acidity and aromatic concentration in
the white grapes and higher color and tannin development in the reds.

WINEMAKING
The grapes were machine harvested as well as harvested by hand. Fermentation took place on
the skins and the wine was fermented in stainless-steel tanks at temperatures between 70 and
88°F for five to 11 days, and the wine pumped over the skins two to three times a day. The wine
was then drained and pressed off the skins for further aging in oak barrels and stainless-steel
tanks. After 24 months in a combination of French, American and Eastern European barrels,
30% new, the wine was racked and blended before bottling.

WINEMAKER NOTES
Following its deep ruby-red color, this charming red blend opens with aromas of jammy
blackberry, plum, chocolate, mocha and roasted coffee. A mouthful of sweet fruit and
full-bodied lushness follows, with the blackberry fruit accented by notes of toasty oak.

Food Pairings
This rich, jammy blend will pair nicely with a wide range of foods, including steak, ribs and
hamburgers off the grill.
Please enjoy our wines responsibly.
