Name: Menage a Trois Cabernet Sauvignon
Origin: U.S. – California
I’ve had this same wine in other years and it was just ok. But I saw it on sale and I know it’s widely distributed so I thought I’d give it another go. The name of the wine is a slam dunk from a marketing perspective and no doubt the reason for its success and wide distribution. I mean, if you’re having dinner with your girlfriend and her roommate, is there another wine one could serve that would be more appropriate?
The wine is ruby colored and fragrant, with scents of dark berries. The flavor is somewhat understated, dark berries again with a hint of spice and it’s somewhat tannic. Not super tannic but they definitely make themselves known. The tannins quickly give way to a medium finish. It’s an ok wine…again. I think you can do better for the price, the quality just isn’t on par with the name…which is second to none.
