Ménage à Trois California Red

20130912-201605.jpgLCBO#: 308007
Price: $17.95
Made in: California, USA
By: Folie à Deux
Varietal: Zinfandel, Merlot & Cabernet Sauvignon

This Californian red wine does remind us a lot of Apothic Red. Loads of berries in the nose with the vanilla notes covering the leather. The taste is pretty sweet with berry jams and the vanilla calms things down. Not much tannins but more stickiness from the sugars. So, overall a nice blended red wine that is easy to drink. Recommended for a house wine when a bunch of friends come over for snack and wine. A little too sweet to be a great wine, but if you like Apothic Red and find the vanilla a little too strong, you should prefer this one.
