Winemaker's Notes:

This 2011 Folie a Deux Cabernet Sauvignon delivers pristine juicy blackcurrant fruit balanced with an a great backbone of acidity which is typcial of the Alexander Valley in California. Sumptuous and complex with hints of cedar and spices, and a long, flavorful finish.

  In 1981, two wine-loving psychiatrists established a boutique winery they name Folie a Deux, a French term meaning “A passion shared by two.”  Thirty years later, our shared passion is creating world-class varietal wines from the leading appellations of Sonoma County. Made to be enjoyed upon release, our Russian River Valley Chardonnay, Sonoma County Merlot, Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, and Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel embody the perfect fusion of grape variety and growing region.  Showcasing vibrant aromas and flavors, they offer a striking balance of intensity and accessibility.  At Folie a Deux, we think it’s ok to be a little crazy about wine.  After all, we are!

Spicy peppery nose, opens with surprisingly high acidity then moves swiftly into strong tannins. Coffee and licorice dominate with some black fruits then licorice / anise on the finish. Nice

This bottle was a recent gift from our good friend Megan. We opened it on Thanksgiving, giving it a good breath of air before pouring. Decent color, and a surprisingly strong nose that smelled strongly of ripe blueberries, cardamom, and very faint leather, this cab impressed me initially considering its sticker price. Taste was moderate, not lacking flavor but not packing the complexity that an exellent cab would. For the price, this is a solid buy. 6/10 overall.

Had this wine twice and fairly consistent notes. One was a bit softer than the other ( less Acidic ) but both very nice. Good Cab at this price point. Tannins in check and drinks nice on its' own. Good fruit, appealing wine.

Beautiful aromas of tart black cherry are complemented by bold flavors ofblackberry and raspberry. Well-integrated tannins and essences of dark toffee andtreacle provide a nice finish. This 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon is a powerful winewith good structure and balance.
