About Au Bon Climat
Since it was founded in 1982, Au Bon Climat has been a well respected producer of Burgundian-styled California wines. Jim Clendenen's Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs are mineral, focused and restrained in the early going, and sometimes quite oaky.

($45) Light red. Musky aromas of strawberry, raspberry and dried flowers. Sweet on entry, then vibrant and spicy in the middle, with juicy red berry and cherry flavors. Dusty tannins add support and carry through a tightly focused and slightly dusty finish. Gains sweetness with aeration as well as more flesh; I'd hold off opening this for a few more years.
