Editorial Reviews for Folie Deux à Chardonnay Napa Valley
There’s a lot of caramel and licorice on the nose early on though it is joined by black cherry, plum and a little bit of a bouillon note with time. This is smooth and soft with plenty of cherry and strawberry fruit layered over lightly toasty and spicy oak. There’s lovely balance here, both structurally and with the flavors. While this may not blow anyone away, it’s a really well done bottle of Zin that shows off the wine’s fruity side without turning monolithic. The finish shows a bit of darker fruit but the tannins remain soft and the hint of sugar here drives the finish to a red currant jam/cocoa powder finale. 88pts

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.
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.
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.
