About Folie a Deux 2016 Zinfandel, Dry Creek Valley
Perhaps the first place to look for outstanding red Zin is Dry Creek Valley, a small but prime quality AVA in Sonoma with a warm climate and old vine plantings from the early Italian immigrants. The ocean fog rolls in in the morning, cooling down the warm temperatures and giving the grapes a much-needed break from the California sun.
When Trinchero purchased Folie a Deux and decided to make it a Sonoma brand, they sourced top quality fruit from the best areas, which is just what we have in this wine. 93% Zinfandel and 7% Petite Syrah from prime vineyards in Dry Creek Valley are aged up to 18 months in 29% new French and American oak.
James Suckling scored this 92 points saying "Attractive aromas of red berries here with deeper, ripe dark plums and spiced earth, too. The palate has a smooth, rich and fleshy array of supple and dense fruit flesh and a smooth, luxuriant finish.”
