Our 2021 Clos du Bois Pinot Noir is an approachable, medium-bodied red wine from California. Aromas of cherry and vanilla bean rise from the glass with a touch of anise. This wine brims with layers of sweet cherry, strawberry and raspberry with a silky mouthfeel. Ribbons of toasted oak and caramel underscore the fruit, leading to a long finish. <br><br> <b>Viticulture Notes</b><br> This elegant Pinot Noir is sourced from select vineyards in some of California’s most renowned growing regions. The 2021 growing season experienced a warm spring, which brought on early budbreak. Dry conditions served to further reduce crops size. However, anticipated diurnal temperature shifts kept the fruit from ripening too quickly and allowed it to develop slowly and evenly. <br><br> <b>Winemaking Notes</b><br> We prefer to harvest our Pinot Noir in the cool early morning hours, which helps preserve the inherent fruit character of the grapes. After it is delivered to the winery, we gently destem and send mostly whole berries directly to stainless steel fermenters to be cold soaked at 60-65°F for up to 2 days. During primary fermentation, we meticulously managed the extraction on skins to capture a silky tannin structure. To create subtle hints of vanilla and toasted oak, we racked the wine onto oak and let it age for 3-4 months. Individual lots were then chosen and combined to create the final blend.

<b>About the Wine</b><br> The 2021 Clos du Bois Sauvignon Blanc is a bright wine that blossoms with aromas of lemongrass and honeysuckle. Pale straw in color, this wine delivers layers of Meyer lemon, kiwi and grapefruit with a lovely hint of white raspberry on the finish. A bright mouthfeel leads to a cleansing midpalate and a medium-long finish. <br><br> <b>Viticulture Notes</b><br> We source the fruit for our delicious Sauvignon Blanc from select vineyards throughout California. The 2021 vintage began cool with much of the state experiencing dry conditions throughout the spring months. Summer brought the usual weather patterns that California vineyards thrive on: warm sunny days and cool fog-laden evenings, which allows the fruit to ripen slowly and evenly. The result is fully developed flavor characteristics, color and acidity. <br><br> <b>Winemaking Notes</b><br> To retain the lively acidity and fruit characteristics of our Sauvignon Blanc, the grapes were harvested in the cool hours of the evening or early morning. After arrival at the winery, the fruit was gently pressed as whole clusters before being racked into stainless steel tanks to undergo fermentation. The yeast strain was chosen for its minimal impact on the flavors and aromas of the wine allowing the fruit to shine. The resulting wine is fresh, vibrant and delicious.

The North Coast imparts ripe apple and pear characteristics, while the Central Coast brings full, concentrated flavor and a gorgeous acidity to the grapes. <br><br> We harvested the grapes in the cool of night, then gently pressed them to preserve the Chardonnay’s fruit characteristics. After settling, the juice was partially barrel fermented in a combination of French and American oak, with the remaining juice undergoing fermentation in stainless steel. To soften the wine’s acidity and impart a rich and creamy mouthfeel, we put the wine through malolactic fermentation.
