Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The Folie à Deux Zinfandel opens with jammy berry aromas, framed by notes of allspice, mocha and cedar. The bright fruit flavors, balanced acidity and medium tannins in this Zinfandel complement its soft, round mouthfeel and long, lingering finish. For an excellent pairing, serve this wine with braised pork topped with a spiced curry sauce and rosemary herbs.
Vineyard Notes
Located northwest of the town of Healdsburg in Sonoma County, the Dry Creek Valley is one of California’s smallest appellations, measuring just 16 miles long and two miles wide. The area was discovered in the 1870’s by Italian immigrants, who were reminded of the hills in their native Tuscany and Piedmont. They planted Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and Carignane grapes on the Dry Creek Valley’s benchlands to emulate the hearty red wines to which they were accustomed, often inter-planting the varieties to create “field-blended” wines.
Winemaker Notes
The grapes for this Zinfandel underwent a three-day cold soak, and a starter yeast was used to initiate fermentation at 75°F. During a maceration period of 11 to 15 days, the juice was pumped over the skins daily to maximize the extraction of the variety’s rich flavor and tannins. Delestage—an oxygenation technique—was employed during active fermentation to soften the wine and showcase its fruit character. This Zinfandel was aged in a combination of French and American oak barrels.
