Winemaker's Notes:

Concentrated, juicy and jammy, our classic Zinfandel's bright blackberry and ripe plum fruit is complemented by the characteristic black pepper spice tones that give the varietal its invigorating zestiness. This Dry Creek Valley Zin is the quintessential Folie à Deux wine – i.e., it will impel you to dance and share a bottle with friends, probably simultaneously!

This wine is predominately Zinfandel but is enhanced with a small amount of Petite Sirah added to the blend. Folie a Deux's winemaker believes the Petite Sirah adds a layer of complexity to the flavors on the mid-palate as well as adding depth to the color of the wine.

Blend: 88% Zinfandel and 11% Petite Syrah

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.
