Folie á Deux Ménage á Trois Red 2004

Member Review by Dave Sotelo:

This bottle was a recent gift from our good friend Megan. We opened it on Thanksgiving, giving it a good breath of air before pouring. Decent color, and a surprisingly strong nose that smelled strongly of ripe blueberries, cardamom, and very faint leather, this cab impressed me initially considering its sticker price. Taste was moderate, not lacking flavor but not packing the complexity that an exellent cab would. For the price, this is a solid buy. 6/10 overall.

  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!

Beautiful stuff: bottle whiffs of fresh unbaked crescent rolls, transmutes to nose of dark plum & black and blueberry in the glass, to full fruit mouth feel of black cherry. Deep color black purple semi-translucent with stout structure while still soft on the palette, and med weight as ever thou could want? -As thoroughly professional a wine as anyone could ever hope for: California chic and classy yet modern style. A shortish clipped finish, that still has full pleasant fruit, 26 seconds, with acrid but balanced acai twang of understated elegance, again just so satisfying in everday sense, and with big dinner aspect also. Grazie to Folie à deux Winery! Vintage 2007. I would serve this wine for anyone, anytime with confidence in the quality e performance of this great Vin! I had this wine with gato nero, my Taj e Moto. The nose on this wine reminds me of crushed plum, Black & Blueberries. This wine would pair well with the following foods: Anything; Pasta with clam sauce to Beef Braciole: Soup to nuts. I think this wine is priced as a super VALUE! Retails locally $11.99, Costco value $7.99, actually just adjacent to were I picked up 2 treasured bottles of Sena (!) If I have any arm wrestling to do with this wine, it's that I don't have the room to keep another case around the house. It ist another reliable fantastic value, superb quality wine that I don't have room to have four cases stacked up? A full molto benni vin rating at 90

I had the 2008 version of this (a Costco specialty) and loved it. A fabulous jammy, slightly dry wine for everyday occasions at a very cheap price! <$9/bottle.
