Folie à Deux Merlot 2013
The Folie à Deux 2013 Alexander Valley Merlot has bright, enticing berry fruit characteristics with hints of toasted caramel from the oak and a lavish layer of velvety tannins. The fruit, vanilla and cherry flavors are concentrated and focused boasting a firm, yet plush finish. Folie à Deux 2013 Alexander Valley Merlot is inviting with balanced acidity, making it a perfect complement to most meat dishes, such as Mediterranean lamb burgers or a slow cooked roast beef.
Following a 10-14 day maceration period, the lots are aged for 17 months in a combination of French, American and Hungarian oak barrels. This wine is bright and varietally expressive.
