Clos du Bois Sonoma Reserve Alexander Valley 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon, $14.44-$19.99, 87 points, poured a deep ruby trending a black currant purple/red with a broad clear wine ring at the glass bowl showing moderate sheeting.
Upon opening, were profuse cedar with strong violet aromas, but the aromas swiftly settled-down with a somewhat shy black currant, cedar, plum, and fresh linen.
Nearly full-bodied with good acidity and slightly astringent tannin managed tart pomegranate, mulberry, anise, and plum flavors.
Finished long on hot spices, oak notes, chalky blackberry, and a typical 14.5% alcohol.
Paired okay with our brick-oven sausage and pepperoni pizza.
