Menage a Trois Pinot Noir 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Subtle on the nose with perfumy blue fruit aromas and gentle suggestions of herb stems, cedary oak and a touch of violet candy. This enters the mouth with lightness and brightness, really almost seamlessly with faint tannins and that acid backbone that makes Pinot deceptively delicate. The fruit shows good clarity with raspberry and watermelon notes that are topped with a hint of smoke and very subtle oak elements that drive the finish and obscure some of the fruit on the finale. This is a touch sticky but is really quite attractive. 87pts

  In 1981, two wine-loving psychiatrists established a boutique winery they name Folie a Deux, a French term meaning “A passion shared by two.”  Thirty years later, our shared passion is creating world-class varietal wines from the leading appellations of Sonoma County. Made to be enjoyed upon release, our Russian River Valley Chardonnay, Sonoma County Merlot, Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, and Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel embody the perfect fusion of grape variety and growing region.  Showcasing vibrant aromas and flavors, they offer a striking balance of intensity and accessibility.  At Folie a Deux, we think it’s ok to be a little crazy about wine.  After all, we are!

This is my table wine.. A little sweet and jam-like on the tongue but perfect for sharing over long, laughing conversations.
