Folie a Deux Menage Trois White St Helena Napa County 2009
Like its siblings, this Chardonnay is a true California Ménage à Trois, blending fruit from three of the state's top Chardonnay growing regions. With fresh citrus aromas from Monterey County, lush tropical fruit flavors from Santa Barbara County and fine structure from Mendocino County, this is one palate pleaser that's guaranteed to satisfy!
This is a great go-to wine when you don't feel like searching around. You can find it everywhere. The blend is good and has some good black and red berry flavors and some, though not a ton of depth. However, this is an amazing option as a go-to when you want to grab something that a lot of people will like - either for your own or someone else's dinner party, for example.
This is a very easy-drinking wine, with lots of orange and pineapple flavors. Very refreshing.
For the price, it's a okay. It's not water-y but it's tart and a tiny bitter bitter on the first and second sips. I'd say it's jammy, fruity and has a small bite. Just a cheap table wine.
Menage a Trois - Folie à Deux Ménage à Trois California Red Wine 2009, $ 8 - $10. A very drinkable fruit forward red that makes a nice everyday table wine. There's a lot of yummy, jammy fruit here but may be too simplistic for some (88 pts).
This was recommended by a friend...I found it to be "just okay". Good price though.
As many of the other reviews have pointed out, this red blend is definitely a "play it safe." When you find you need a wine quick to bring/serve at a party or if you just need a wine to go with tonight's everyday dinner, this is a good blend with both aromas and taste of berries. The blending method does allow for distinct taste of the three varietals with each one's unique characteristic subtly shinning through, but not strong enough for my own personal liking.
Full body cherry red wine. The taste is sweet and a little dry. It smells of black berries over all I like it
External Reviews for Folie a Deux Menage Trois White St Helena Napa County
A marvelous blend of three grapes varietals, Chardonnay, Muscat Alexandria and Chenin Blanc, makes this Menage a Trois White lively and satisfying. Each variety is individually harvested, gently crushed and coldfermented in small stainless steel tanks to preserve freshness and character and retain the juicy fruit aromas. This white blend brings together citrus and tropical fruit flavors with crisp acidity. Dare we say it’s refreshing? With food or without, alone or with two companions, this is one of the most exhilarating experiences imaginable.
Three rockin’ red varitetals, Zinfandel, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, are blended together for a red wine that’s silky, succulent and sensational. Fermented separately, to retain their own unique character, the Folie a Deux winemaking team carefully compiled this ripe red blend in perfect proportion for a wine that’s’ supple with rich fruit and lively spice. Perfect for the barbecue or just easy sipping. All for an amazing value price.
A fruit-forward blend of Zinfandel, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Soft, sassy, and spicy with ripe flavors of blackberry, cranberry, and mocha.
This blend of Zinfandel, Merlot and Cabernet sure is fun. it's gentle in body, with ripe, polished berry-cherry and cocoa flavors and a smattering of smoky oak. A great house red.
Winemaker Notes - Three different grapes add up beautifully in our M nage Trois White. Chardonnay lends its firm, rich character, while Muscat shows up wild and exotic, and Chenin Blanc plays a soft supporting role. Together they produce one show-stopping wine.
