The Folie à Deux Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir shows beautifully from the Sonoma Coast AVA, which contains more than 500,000 acres, primarily along the coastline of the Pacific Ocean, and extends from San Pablo Bay to the border of Mendocino County. Known for its cool climate and high rainfall relative to other parts of Sonoma County, the Sonoma Coast is renowned for its world-class Pinot Noir.
Grapes for this Pinot Noir were sourced from prime vineyards located in California’s prestigious Sonoma Coast AVA. Aged 9 months in primarily French oak barrels (33% new), this 100% Pinot Noir showcases the best of what Sonoma Coast has to offer: rich, powerful and mouth-watering.
The Folie à Deux 2017 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir opens with enticing aromas of cherry cola, strawberry jam, raspberry and redwood. Rich and fleshy, this wine has supple flavors of spicy tobacco, dark cocoa, black licorice and toasty vanilla oak. A bright, juicy palate and precise balance of rounded, smooth tannins and acid adds lift on the finish with red fruits and potpourri notes. This Pinot Noir is a perfect match for wild mushroom bruschetta.
