Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2014 Folie a Deux Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a pure expression of its region. Concentrated aromas of blackberry and boysenberry jam are balanced by spicy anise, clove and tea. Peppery cedar notes sit atop the ripe berry and back cherry aromas. Flavors of vanilla, toasty oak and tobacco intertwine in the mouth, which compliments the firm structure and ripe tannins of this beautiful Bordeaux varietal. Pair the 2014 Folie a Deux Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon with herb-crusted lamb or a juicy, seasoned burger topped with goat cheese and carmelized onions.
Vineyard Notes
The Alexander Valley had relatively moderate temperatures in 2014, a phenomenal vintage across California. Abundant sunshine allowed the grapes to ripen evenly throughout the growing season, and minimal rainfall, followed by warmth and ample air circulation, kept the threat of fungus at bay. Although Cabernet Sauvignon is typically a late-ripening variety, warmer-than-average temperatures in spring and early summer prompted an early harvest. The fruit from this vintage yielded rich fruit flavors and soft tannins.
Winemaker Notes
This Cabernet Sauvignon underwent a maceration period of 10 to 16 days, which fostered the rich color, medium body, balanced mouthfeel and excellent aging potential of the wine. Following a moderate fermentation temperature at 75°F, the wine was aged for 22 months in a combination of French and American oak barrels, giving it a plush mouthfeel and complex layers of flavor.
Production
Grapes for the Folie à Deux 2014 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon were carefully selected from prime vineyards in northern Sonoma’s renowned Alexander Valley. Stretching 22 miles from Healdsburg to Cloverdale following the Russian River’s winding course, this appellation is noted for its high quality Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot vineyards, which benefit from the region’s warm climate, marine-cooled evenings and well-drained, volcanic hillside soils.
