Menage a Trois Sauvignon Blanc 2012

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Quite fruity and intense on the nose with aromas of grapefruit, gooseberry, mango, lavender, and a blade or two of grass. A bit soft on entry, this has a sweetness that expands on the palate countered by nicely bright acids. The flavors are fairly ripe and exotic with notes of mango accented by streaks of lemon and lime and a hint of papaya on the backend which gains a touch of pineapple peel astringency. A lime zest astringency lingers on the palate over the moderately long finish making this well suited for pairing with white fish or marinated shellfish. 86pts

  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!
