Folie A Deux Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley Sonoma County

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.

Located at the northern end of Sonoma County, the Alexander Valley AVA stretches 22 miles from Healdsburg north to Cloverdale, following the meandering course of the Russian River. Its sometimes narrow valley floor is flanked by undulating hillsides rising up to 2,000 feet in elevation. Along its heavily graveled benchlands and foothills lie some of California’s supreme Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards, which benefit from the region’s warm daytime temperatures, marine- cooled evenings and well-drained, volcanic hillside soils. These conditions yield mouthfilling, fruit-forward and supple red wines boasting layers of lush black cherry, dark berry and spice flavors balanced by smooth, well-structured tannins.

Interestingly this is a 2010 vintage and has nice color but lacks in boutique and finish which is rather harsh. May need another year in the bottle since I tried a 2009 and it was excellent. That said, it could be the vintage in 09 being better than 10.
