Clos du Bois Cabernet Sauvignon North Coast 2012 750ml

Clos du Bois Cabernet Sauvignon North Coast

2012 was a challenging vintage on California’s North Coast. 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. 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.

Our Director of Winemaking Gary Sitton’s deep appreciation of the art and science of agriculture can be traced back to growing up on his father’s pistachio farm. Earning an M.S. in Food Science: Enology and Viticulture from UC Davis, Gary has spent his entire winemaking career in Sonoma County and takes great pride in capturing the essence of the region in every wine he creates.

We farm almost 800 acres in the vibrantly diverse wine regions of Sonoma County and Coastal California, working closely with trusted local growers to build long-lasting relationships. By sharing our decades of boutique winemaking knowledge, technology and resources with each of these growers, we ensure the integrity and effortless sophistication of every wine we create.
