A full-bodied wine with a taste reminiscent of rich blackberry jam, currants, plum and cherry fruitiness, ending with a long, pleasant, coffee-like finish.

About Folie a Deux Winery:

Co-owners are ex-psychiatrists. Folie a Deux literally means ''a madness shared by two.'' They're located two miles north of St. Helena and focus on Cabernet, Zinfandel, Syrah and Sangiovese. They also produce a fun white called ''Menage a Trois'' which is a blend of Muscat Cannelli, Cahrdonnay and Chenin Blanc.
