Wine Review Online
"One strikingly clear result of the 2014 San Diego International Wine Competition (at which this wine won a Platinum award) was that the 2012 vintage in California turned out some terrific renditions of Pinot Noir, including some truly stellar bottlings at approachable prices. This wine from Sonoma Coast shows pure but still punch fruit notes, with an alluring backnote of cola and nicely balanced edging from acidity and tine-grained tannins. The flavors prove impressively persistent through the finish, tailing off in an admirably symmetrical manner."
The Folie a Deux 2012 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir is deeply concentrated with intense aromas of ripe plum, dark cherry and raspberry followed by subtle hints of earthy truffle and spice. Precise and textured, this wine has dark, briary fruit, chocolate and notes of tobacco leaf on the palate. The finish is long and smooth, supporting a structured and lush body.
Enjoy a glass of Folie a Deux Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir with grilled chicken and chanterelle mushrooms or fresh vegetable fettuccine drizzled with extra-virgin olive oil.
