Clos Du Bois Cabernet Sauvignon (2005)

This California Clos Du Bois Cabernet Sauvignon 2005 is ohhh-la-la. Tom chose this wine tonight (Tuesday) to go with our dinner (which is in the oven) of meatloaf, baked acorn squash, mashed potatoes and corn. This is yet another one of my recent Kroger purchases. It was on sale —  from around $15 to $10.

This is delicious wine with powerful flavor. In the glass is a deep, inky red.  On the nose is a combination of cranberries and licorice along with hints of nutmeg and oak. On the palate is thick blackberry flavors with a long and rich finish. If you like a good Cabernet, I can’t imagine you wouldn’t enjoy this one. If I find a good deal, I’ll get a case. I am very much enjoying this wine.

I am thinking about our son, Tony, in South Korea. He would like this wine. . .

    Just had a glass of this cab at a premier, local steak house, and was very pleasantly impressed. Two days later the luscious texture, smooth finish, and diversified complexity stayed with me so I had to purchase a bottle. The glass cost $8.75…the bottle was on sale for just over $11.00 Both were well worth their cost.

      Hello Windrunner — What a beautiful name. It conjures up many beautiful images in my mind. I am glad you enjoyed the Clos Du Bois Cabernet. It’s a keeper.

      Were you able to bring the bottle of wine home from the restaurant? Is that why you were able to taste the the complexity two days later?
