The Clos du Bois Sonoma Reserve Malbec 2013 is a rich and flavorful red wine. Deep purple in the glass, the nose is full of dried blueberry and black cherry. The palate echoes these notes, with flavors of black cherry, dried cocoa, and chocolate. The texture of the wine is full-bodied and nicely structured, with chewy tannins.
The 2013 growing season was nearly ideal and produced high yields of quality fruit. The resulting wine is flavorful and robust. It will pair well with mushrooms or dishes with blue cheese.
