Love this. I'm a fan of the Ménage red blend but I trend more towards syrah than cab.. And this fits the bill perfectly for a rich table wine

Got a bottle of this just before the holidays and ended up serving it for a huge group of family and friends on Christmas Eve. Everyone, without exception, loved it. Have to admit it is a near perfect wine! No tannins, not too fruity, not too dry, leaves no objectionable after taste. Just makes your palate happy. Extremely drinkable. This wine is as good as many really expensive French Bordeaux wines but at an incredibly reasonable price. Best wine I have tasted in a decade!

Tasting Notes: The time has come to explore your deepest, darkest desires with Ménage à Trois Midnight. A gorgeous garnet color in the glass, this luxurious blend wraps you up in a velvety embrace. Voluptuous blackberry and plush spiced plum flavors seduce your palate, while hints of mocha and exotic spice linger on your lips like a stolen kiss. Silky and smooth with a long, powerful finish, youll wish Midnight could last forever. - WineryVineyard and Winemaking: Our winemakers are definitely not afraid of the dark. For this special wine, they wanted to create a truly uninhibited blendsomething deeper, darker, and bolder than ever before. In true Ménage à Trois style, they decided that more is more, and crafted a blend of not threebut fourgrapes! Merlot addsa plush, velvety texture, Cabernet Sauvignon offers elegance and power, Petite Sirah lends inky intensity and Petit Verdot imparts a deep violet color and concentrated fruit. To round out the flavors the wine is aged on French and American oak. The result is a wine that leaves an indelible impression.
