The Clos du Bois Sonoma Reserve Old Vine Carignane 2013 is a lush wine that is full of fruit and savory flavor. The wine is deep purple and ruby in the glass, and aromas of blueberry, cedar, earth, toasted oak, and forest floor waft to the nose. The palate displays fresh blackberry, with dense tannins and a rich texture.
This wine benefits from a nearly ideal 2013 growing season, which resulted in high yields of quality fruit. Temperatures were mild and steady, allowing even ripening and full flavor development.
