It was founded in 1974 by Frank Woods and the first commercial wines produced were a Chardonnay and a Pinot Noir. Clos du Bois now has a large portfolio and its production is over one million cases annually. The company has a selection populated by wines at a range of price points, but are mostly made from varieties common in California and Sonoma – Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Sauvignon Blanc. In 1978 Clos du Bois introduced Sonoma's first Bordeaux-style red blend, while Frank Woods was also a significant force in popularizing appellation and vineyard designations on California labels, favoring them over brand names. Clos du Bois began with a relatively significant amount of land for a new winery, a little more than 210 hectares (520 acres). Over the course of its history it has been an advocate for sustainable and green vineyard practices. The winery has over 4000 solar panels which provide almost the entirety of its energy needs. Woods sold the winery in 1988, eventually leading to its purchase by beverage giant Constellation Brands Inc. The winery and brand were among several lower-end Constellation brands sold to Gallo in a deal that was approved in January 2021.\u003cbr\u003e","published_at":"2023-04-03T17:45:19-04:00","created_at":"2023-03-25T06:37:52-04:00","vendor":"CaskCartel.com","type":"Wine","tags":["Country_United States","nini2703","Other_Wine","Producer_Clos du Bois","Region_California","Source_Hedonism0323","Type_Red Wine","varietal_cabernet sauvignon"],"price":59899,"price_min":59899,"price_max":59899,"available":true,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":42869617131658,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"1974 | Clos du Bois | Proprietor's Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":59899,"weight":12247,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_management":"shopify","barcode":"","requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_allocations":[],"quantity_rule":{"min":1,"max":null,"increment":1}}],"images":["\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/45_9e048a71-119a-46f5-b5f8-f52bd2a14a13.png?v=1679740708"],"featured_image":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/45_9e048a71-119a-46f5-b5f8-f52bd2a14a13.png?v=1679740708","options":["Title"],"media":[{"alt":"1974 | Clos du Bois | Proprietor's Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon at CaskCartel.com","id":24473286803594,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":0.351,"height":848,"width":298,"src":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/45_9e048a71-119a-46f5-b5f8-f52bd2a14a13.png?v=1679740708"},"aspect_ratio":0.351,"height":848,"media_type":"image","src":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/45_9e048a71-119a-46f5-b5f8-f52bd2a14a13.png?v=1679740708","width":298}],"requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_groups":[],"content":"\u003ch2\u003eRed Wine: 1974 | Clos du Bois | Proprietor's Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003c\/h2\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e The bouquet is good, but not great, offering up scents of cassis, cigar ash, dark soil tones and a bit of chipotle pepper in the upper register.
