Clos du Bois 2007 Sonoma Reserve Merlot
Alexander Valley, California

This full-bodied wine displays aromas of toasted oak, baking spice and blackberry, segueing into rounded flavors of black cherry and blackberry. With its heavy tannins, this serious Merlot would be the perfect match for beef or lamb as well as dishes with earthy flavors, such as herbs and mushrooms.
