Folie à Deux Ménage à Trois Red

Wine Details

Red

Wine Description

Ménage à Trois red brings together three strange bedfellows: Zinfandel, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. To add complexity and retain character, each variety was fermented separately, then blended together prior to bottling. On top we’ve got Zinfandel, a saucy tease that brings blackberry and raspberry jam to the relationship. Merlot, with its generous mouth feel and red fruits, fits perfectly in the middle. The rich flavors and firm tannins of Cabernet Sauvignon make it the ideal candidate for the bottom layer of the trio.

    Aroma- faint fruity notes - pear and spice. Medium garnet color - semi- opaque. Light to medium body, cherry flavor -sweet for a red. Little to no tannins, crisp acidity. Medium to long finish. A very solid everyday drinking wine. After meal or by itself. Would go well with glazed red meat on the sweet side - e.g. a.fruity or tangy barbecue glaze.

    A perfect threesome of Zinfindel, Merlot, and Cabernet. This wine exposes the fresh, ripe, jam-like fruit. Zinfandel adds a juicy character, Merlot mellows and Cabernet adds backbone. Forward, spicy and soft.

    Although young tasting, it was smooth and soft with a nice finish. Would pay around $8.00. If bought again, try and save for another year!

    Staple wine, light, sweet, fruity, smooth, super easy to drink. Great for converting non-red or new wine drinkers.

    Nice pleasant wine to drink. Nice balance. Cherry on the tongue and a bit sweet. But lasts nicely on the tongue.

    Even if you don't think you like red wine, the fresh, ripe, jam-like fruit of this three-grape blend may change your mind. Zinfandel gives it a juicy character, Merlot mellows and Cabernet adds backbone. Forward, spicy and soft, this delicious dalliance makes the perfect trio.
