Ménage à Trois Red has become very popular here in California, and is so named for its flavorful blend of three popular red wines: Cabernet, Merlot and Zinfandel. Words of wisdom from this kicky, youthful winery:
"Ménage à Trois examines what happens when you put
three attractive, single, young grapes in one exquisite bottle"
During the holidays, I scored the last bottle of the new Ménage à Trois Midnight on our local grocery store shelves. Affordable yet elegant, this wine oozed passionate secrets, dark kisses, and sexy undertones. Exceptionally dark in color, it has a nose like a Christmas plum pudding - full of fruit and spice. Ah , but when you sip this dark beauty, naughtier thoughts enter your mind as the exotic richness of this Petit Syrah, Merlot, Cabernet, and Petit Verdot blend expand your senses.
Blackberry, mocha and a hint of cinnamon blend together in a silky soft kiss as you hit the middle note of this luscious blend. The finish is strong, and almost analogous to - well - you get the picture.
This is a limited release, so grab some while you still can!
Food Pairings: This wine is not for the faint of heart, although it is smooth, it is also quite powerful, I would pair it with an equally powerful dish that can stand up to the intensity of the Midnight blend. Cajun Blackened Chicken or a nice Sausage Jambalaya come to mind.
Music Pairings: This is a sexy yet strong wine, I suggest checking out this list of the 50 greatest seduction songs of all time for some great ideas. Or, stick with a tried and true musician, and play some Marvin Gaye.
Activity Pairings: Friends, this blog is G-rated, so I will leave this one to your imagination.
