Folie à Deux Ménage à Trois 2009

Member Review by 40somethinglife:

Okay – so get your mind out of the gutter and stop giggling. The name, Ménage à Trois, comes from the winemakers using three different young varietals in their wines and for the 2009 Red it seems to work quite nicely. Albeit a very naughty name! They have such a fun website that you should check out. The wine is a dark ruby color. On the nose, it is initially very heady with a peppery and smoky aroma, which then leads to dark, luscious cherries. The wine is full and chewy on the palate and then a has quick, jammy, sweet finish. Once you start drinking the wine with more seriousness, it becomes silky and smooth and goes down a treat although still quite sweet. I find this wine very rich tasting that almost makes you believe you are drinking a pricey bottle, rather than a more affordable bottle of vino.

Nice medium bodied red wine. Good jammy feeling with a heavy fruit taste. Low tannins. Overall a steal for the price

A Zinfandel-based blend that is plush, full of sweet fruit, and immensely popular.
