Menage a Trois - Folie à Deux Ménage à Trois California Red Wine 2008, $ 8 - $10. A tasty, fruit forward red that is very drinkable. A nice everyday table wine. Something of a fruit bomb - enjoyable but may be too simplistic for more sophisticated palates (88 pts).

    Got a bottle at Sam's Club for less than $8. The bouquet is very fruity and has hints of plum and cherry. Not tannic at all and very smooth on the back end. Good wine for the price paid.

    My wife and I love this wine. We have sampled many high priced red wines and this is definitely one of our favourites. We have a hard time finding it here in eastern Canada so we buy it by the case when it's available.

    Even if red wine is not your speed, give our Menage a Trois Red a try. This wine exposes the fresh, ripe, jam-like fruit that is the calling card of California wine. Three saucy grapes make up the blend. Zinfandel adds a juicy character, Merlot mellows and Cabernet adds backbone. Forward, spicy and soft, this delicious dalliance makes the perfect trio.

    Winemaker's Notes:

    The grapes for this Zinfandel were gently hand-picked, de-stemmed, and crushed. The must was cold soaked for one to three days and once fermentation started, the tanks underwent daily rack and return. This process promotes aroma and flavor extraction while lessening the impact of harsh seed tannin. A portion of the wine was fermented using native yeast. All of the Zinfandel was aged in French and American oak for 12 months to develop complex oak aromas that complement the ripe berry and spice flavors of the wine.

    Tasting Notes:

    This Zinfandel offers complex aromas of plum and cherry with just a hint of spicy clove followed by bold flavors of blackberry, raspberry, and plum. Smooth through to the lingering, juicy finish, this wine showcases the classic Zinfandel spice and fruit characteristics for which Amador County is renowned.
