Folie a Deux Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The Folie a Deux Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is well-balanced and polished, featuring fragrant aromas of dark cherry, blackberry, cassis and anise. The rich, elegant, black fruit flavors lead to a focused and finely crafted 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!

Tight on the nose with minty top notes and slow to open aromas of coffee, mocha, boysenberry and black currant. This is a touch low in acidity which gives the impression of both a weighty and fruity/sweet wine. Very smooth on the palate with firm tannins covered by considerable, almost grapey boysenberry, black plum and black cherry fruit with some coffee note for complexity. This is a big wine, rich and fun to drink but it does lack a little liveliness on the palate and some nuance. The finish adds in some blueberry notes before yielding to sweet, toasted oak spices. 88pts
