2006 Folie a Deux Menage A Trois Red California

Wine Description

(From 2012 Vintage) Anthony Giglio While the racy label may grab your attention, what’s inside the bottle will keep it. With Zinfandel, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, Ménage à Trois brings Bordeaux and California together in one sexy, silky red. This blend offers something special from each grape, with deep, jammy blackberry from the Zin, a gentle, rounded texture from the Merlot and structure and richness from Cab. It’s easy drinking, food friendly and unquestionably fun. Marnie Old: It’s easy to see why this California blend is wildly popular—just stick your nose in the glass and it’s hard not to smile. Like a catchy pop song on the radio, it’ll hook you with its splashy aromas of raspberry jam and cherry-vanilla ice cream, underlined with a thumping baseline of bourbonlike oak. Let your hair down with this wine—no pretensions here—and try it with a little ice on a hot summer day. Mark Oldman: Three is not a crowd when you see how this medium-to full-bodied red combines the unlikely partners of Merlot, Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon. Juicy, ripe strawberries and blackberries mix in a swirl of generous fruit, with a bit of vanilla and the slightest touch of tannin present to quicken the pulse. The finish is complex, well integrated and velvety. This selection is a natural choice for summer cocktail parties and cookouts.

Winemaker's Notes

Blend of Zinfandel, Merlot, and Cabernet with a sweet taste of red berries, specifically cherries, and a hint of oak in the background. A great summer drinking wine.
