Folie Deux à Chardonnay Napa Valley 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The fruit for our 2009 Chardonnay was sourced from Napa Valley vineyards in the Northern part of Chardonnay territory including Oak Knoll, Oakville, and Atlas Peak. Once harvested, the fruit was separated into two groups with less than half of the juice fermented in stainless steel tanks in order to preserve the bright fruit flavors. The remaining balance of wine was fermented in small oak barrels to help round out the finish. After fermentation, the wine was aged in French and American oak for 6 months.

Wine Tasting NotesThe aromas of this deep ruby red, full bodied merlot is redolent of blueberry, Bing cherry, cocoa and black tea. The aromas follow through to the palate accompanied by medium plus acidity and nuances of the telltale mineral called "Rutherford Dust". Mouth-filling texture with a lasting finish.

Tasting Notes:

Aromas of Fuji apple, peach, and pineapple are complemented by zesty and luscious fruit flavors and nuances of coconut, vanilla, and toasted oak. This sunshine-infused Napa Valley Chardonnay has bright acidity, a round mid-palate, and a crisp, clean finish.
