Menage a Trois Rose 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"Our Menage a Trois Rose is the epitome of a good rose. No pretension, no pretense. Just a fruit-laden roller coaster ride of raspberries, strawberries, lychee nuts and flowers with a silky smooth finish. A medium weighted palate with an cocktail of citrus and tropical flavors. This Rose is a madcap blend of Merlot, Syrah and Gewurztraminer. The two red grape varietals received a 24-hour cold soak on the skins to give the wine its suggestive pinkness and luscious body. The Gewurztraminer was cold fermented to preserve the exotic spice and naked fruit. No malolactic fermentation here, just fruity, mouthwatering, crisp acidity." -Winery

  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!

The Gewurztraminer really pops on the nose here along with wonderfully fresh raspberry fruit and hints of flint, dried flowers and Swedish Fish. A touch sweet on entry, this shows fine balancing acidity in the mouth. The Gewurz adds nice honey and honeysuckle notes early on the palate, joined by flavors of sweet red berries and a hint of chocolate on the palate. The finish is more of the same with an orange rind/citrus character joining in. This is unusual and the floral quality contributed by the Gewurztraminer will prove to be divisive, but this is awfully well made in its style and will knock some folks’ socks off. 88pts
