Folie a Deux Alexander Valley Cabernet 2016

As the weather settles into a typical Fall pattern here along the Front Range our thoughts begin to turn to heartier wine and richer food. This week we have an opulent Alexander Valley Cabernet for you that we are sure is going to impress! Elegant aromatic topnotes of midsummer flowers, sweet vanilla, and warm chocolate chip cookies waft out of the glass to greet you as soon as you go in for that first swirl and sniff. The nose is so lovely that you’ll want to keep swirling and sniffing as it evolves while this young Cab breathes. As pretty as it is on the nose, eventually you’ll have to go in for a sip. And what a nice sip it is! Classic Alexander Valley Cabernet flavors of homemade cocktail cherries, cranberry ginger relish, and macerated strawberries deliver real impact on the palate without ever feeling syrupy or overpowering. Then, as the wine slowly fades on the finish, handsome hints of toasty oak, bouquet garni, Tahitian vanilla, and loamy soil all drift into and out of focus giving the wine a real sense of style and generosity. This isn’t some massive Napa bruiser. Instead it is a full bodied, generous Cabernet that will be thoroughly pleasurable to sip with food and without. If you enjoy having a good glass of Cab then you certainly ought to consider picking up a six pack of the 2016 Folie a Deux because it feels, to us at least, like it hits all the highpoints at a surprisingly modest price.
Food Pairing:
For years I’ve been making this great cranberry ginger relish when fresh cranberries start to come into season at the grocery. We always serve it at our Thanksgiving table but it sees plenty of action on weeknights also since it keeps well in the fridge and reheats easily. The basics are simple with fresh cranberries, fresh ginger, and fresh orange zest making up the backbone of the sauce. I like to add a bit of ruby port to the pot as the sauce simmers and my kids would complain if I didn’t hit it with some brown sugar and cinnamon too. In any event, I suggest you grab a bag of cranberries and play with them in the kitchen a bit because eating them always makes it feel a little more like fall even if the temps are still in the 60’s out there. A fresh young Cabernet like the 2016 Folie a Deux will work admirably with that sauce whether you serve it over pork, chicken, or even beef.

Domaine Les Yeuses Syrah Les Epices 2016

Premium French Syrah is some of the most age-worthy, thought provoking, and complex wine in the world. High end bottlings from the Northern Rhone regularly fetch hundreds if not thousands of dollars per bottle because of their unique style and structure. This week’s special, Les Epices Syrah from Domaine Les Yeuses, is a bit more modest in price than those apex predators from places like Cornas and Cote Rotie but it offers you a window into the soul of the grape that is all too often closed to folks without stratospheric wine budgets. A darkly complected, cool weather Red, the 2016 Les Epices Syrah begins with a suggestive perfume of woodsmoke, tar, balsamic, and blueberry cobbler. On the palate you’ll find a wine that deftly bridges the gap between the dark and the light as it delivers appealing notes of cassis liqueur, blueberry jam, and crushed black cherries all the while maintaining a sense of freshness and levity (probably due in large measure to the fact it is barely an adolescent in its development). The finish offers no hard edges but there is still some nicely balanced, food friendly acidity in addition to lingering notes of pencil lead, cinnamon, and game. With the hunters out in the woods and the snow beginning to fall, I can’t think of a better Red to stock the wine cabinet with than this!
Food Pairing:
This beautiful French Syrah is going to pair up very well with a wide range of Fall flavors. We just served it at the house with these fantastic, slow roasted elk meatballs the other day because a friend brought us a bunch of ground elk from his freezer. I think you would be singing if you served this alongside elk, venison, or even duck but there’s no reason it wouldn’t be right at home with lamb chops, blue cheese studded burgers, or just some cheese and crusty bread. Suffice it to say, this stuff is delicious!
