Folie à Deux Alexander Valley 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon

Folie à Deux Alexander Valley 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon, $14.44-$19.99, 90 points, poured core black trending maroon with a broad clear wine ring of some considerable bleeding, and quite a leggy glass bowl.
Aromatic mulling spices, black fruit, and licorice were outstanding.
The moderately smooth medium-plus body with fair acidity and sweet layered and mostly resolved tannin carried good flavors reflective of the aromas.
Finished well on cedar notes with blackberry, warm spices, and a sweet-spot 14.3% alcohol.
Though Folie à Deux in this case might be named Une passion partagée par un, never-no-mind, it's a great Cabernet all by myself!
Paired great with my New Zealand rib lamb chops.

  1. Who does the cooking in your house? Some great stuff being served up...lamb chops and Zin, yum!

    1. VG: 90% me, 9% take-out, and 1% my son; I always cook the lamb, must be rare, salt, pepper, oregano, and rosemary; quickly sear both sides, and a hot oven for three minutes.
