Top 10 wines in the US press

2012 Folie à Deux Russian, River Chardonnay, California, US

Folie à Deux Russian River Chardonnay 2012Sandra Silfven, writing for Detroit News, picked three “summer sippers” produced by wineries owned by Napa’s Trinchero Family Estates.

She said: “Folie à Deux sources all its wines from Sonoma. Napa Cellars scouts the high-rent valley for great fruit they can turn into affordable wines; Terra d’Oro is best known for Zinfandels in Amador County but grows Rhone varietals too, such as Viognier.

“Let this baby warm up in the glass to catch all the nuances: spice and smoke off French oak barrels, Fuji apple, mandarin orange, pineapple — you catch the acidity in the aromas right away. The vintage was near-perfect; the site is where Chardonnay vines can bask in the cooling fog off the Pacific and send down roots in the well-drained soils. The pressed juice is fermented in French oak and aged in barrel for six months. It has body, good weight and firm acidity. And it’s a young pup.”

Price: $18
