Wine maker notes
The 2011 Folie ŗ Deux Alexander Cabernet Sauvignon embraces the essence of Alexander Valley and the winemakerís harmonious style - an elegant and supple wine with medium-full tannins and a firm, acidic backbone. The nose boasts prominent aromas of black currant and dark plum notes leading to flavors of bright blackberry, rich cassis, and a long, lingering finish with big fruit.
Hints of dried herbs and black olive tapenade on the palate make the 2011 Folie ŗ Deux Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon enjoyable with roasted chicken, grilled lamb or a lightly seasoned flank steak.
