Folie a Deux Menage a Trois, 2006

menage a trois wineI tasted this wine at our friends Alistair & Suzanna’s last night – though I have a bottle of it at home which I bought at Trader Joe’s a few weeks back. I’m pretty sure that we bought a bottle of this same wine at the winery, many years ago, in our pre-kids days, so I thought it was a good bet to get it when I found it at TJ’s. It was.
The wine is not as full and sophisticated as the Fife Meritage we had enjoyed earlier in the evening – but it was similar in that it was unbelievably fruity. Indeed, there seemed to be fruit coming out of everywhere, and even though the wine wasn’t exactly sweet, it’s likely to be a good introductory red for people who see reds as being too dry. It had no tannins, little acidity and a medium body – it was well paired with the chicken apple sausages we had with it.
In all, I think I may get a couple of extra bottles. It seems like a good wine to take to friends’ houses, as it’s likely to be a crowd pleaser.
I don’t remember how much it was at TJ’s, but I think under $10.
