Menage a Trois Red 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Even if red wine is not your speed, give our Ménage à Trois Red a try. This wine exposes the fresh, ripe, jam-like fruit that is the calling card of California wine. Ménage à Trois Red brings together three strange bedfellows. On top we've got Zinfandel, a saucy tease that brings blackberry and raspberry jam to the relationship. Merlot, with its generous mouth feel and red fruits, fits perfectly in the middle. The rich flavors and firm tannins of Cabernet Sauvignon make it the ideal.

  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!

My Rating:87. This Wine is very drinkable. Body and nose is multi fruit aromas that makes this an all around choice for barbeque. It lacks elegance and complexity. But for the right occassion this is it.

Deep red wine has aromas of plum jam, spicy pepper, and leather, followed by berry and jam flavors. While this vintage was OK, the 2008 was much better.

This is one of those wines that just keeps getting better as you drink it. It just keeps opening up and leves you wanting more once the bottle is gone! The acid is medium-low which makes for smooth drinking. The nose is simple... not a whole lot to it. Fruitish smells and a bit of alcohal. But the taste is wonderful! As it opens its got this dry sweetness to it... not a dessert wine sweet (cuz I don't really care for sweet wines) but it's suttlely great! Lots of fruit but uniquley structured. I could go on... but just try it for yourself... I think you'll like or love it!

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.

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. Tasting Panel magazine called it "A juicy rendition of three varieties; each fermented separately; frolicking blueberry, white pepper-tinted jammy Zinfandel; lush brambly Merlot; and a strong-willed, dynamic coffee and plum Cabernet Sauvignon."
