Folie a Deux Cabernet Sauvignon St Helena Napa Valley Estate Lewelling Vineyard 2006

External Review by WineChateau.com:

This Cabernet Sauvignon presents beautiful aromas of black cherry and cocoa. The palate is full of freshly picked plum, raspberry, and other ripe fruit flavors. Nicely integrated tannins result in a balanced and food-friendly wine. This wine can easily be paired with a range of flavorful dishes including chicken parmesan and a lamb burger with goat cheese and mint.

The vineyards of the historic Lewelling estate were established in 1864 near the western foothills in St. Helena by pioneer winegrower and horticulturist John Lewelling. Janice Lewelling Wight, John Lewelling's great-granddaughter, and her husband Russ built a home on the family property in 1950 and quickly became involved in operating and replanting the vineyard. Today Russ, together with his three sons, Alan, Doug and Dave, farm a 28-acre vineyard on a portion of the original estate, one of the oldest continuously-owned family vineyards in the Napa Valley. During the 1870's and 1880's the vineyards of the St. Helena area established a reputation for producing some of the finest wines in the United States, a reputation that is now acknowledged world-wide and is attributed to the unique combination of soils and climate found here. Over the years Lewelling Vineyards has consistently harvested exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon grapes that have been sold to such fine Napa Valley wineries as Caymus, Viader, and Beaulieu. In 1992 the Wight Family began production of their own vineyard-designated wine. Read less
