Folie a Deux Cabernet Sauvignon

Wine of the Day: 2009 Folie a Deux Cabernet Sauvignon

The 2009 Alexander Valley Folie à Deux Cabernet Sauvignon ($24) translates to "a passion shared by two," and the moderately priced Sonoma County red is a great bottle to enjoy on date nights. While pouring the deep purple Cab, I admired the strong smoky and oaky aromas, and the flavor tasted noticeably barrel-aged with a sour cherry zing. Despite its lack of sweetness, the wine is not bitter. And with a medium body and moderate tannic finish, the wine holds its own. It's a red on the lighter side, with a spicy, warm character that would definitely help a date go in the right direction. Serve it alongside earthy risotto and morels or a firm, dry cheese like Parmigiano-Reggiano.
