This is my week to share a bottle of wine and in the quest for a funky and uniquely named bottle, I decided to try a Menage a’ Trois California Red. I was really on the ball this round because I actually purchased and drank this bottle about 2 weeks ago. Go me!
Menage a Trois is really a crazy name for a bottle of wine. I wonder what kind of google searches this will bring to my site? HA.
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.
I have to say that I liked my Menage a Trois…just okay. I was really hoping that I would enjoy it more but things were awkward and I got self conscious…Oh wait, I forgot I was talking about wine.
This wine tasted a bit bitter and heavy to me. But I drank it in my classy Shrek glass and enjoyed it enough to finish every last drop, so it must not have been that bad, right?
I purchased Menage a Trois at Costco for around $7.00, so it was an inexpensive wine to take the edge off of a long testosterone filled day.
I’m really excited about my next review (in three weeks) because I will be partnering with the California Wine Club to share some fabulous California wines with you. While you wait for that, be sure to visit my partners in wine, Heather and Cheryl to see what great drinks they have coming up.
Have you had Menage a Trois before (and I’m talking about the WINE!)? How did you like it?
