The Reverse Wine Snob sets out to discover if what’s INSIDE the bottle is any better than the silly clichéd name on the OUTSIDE of the bottle…
$7.49 at Costco.
From the bottle:
Take a walk on the wild side and explore the pleasures of our Ménage à Trois. Surrender to the seduction of dark, rich berry with a hint of pepper, a lush lingering finish leaving you wishing for more…A delightful blend based on three varietals–Zinfandel, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon.
The short answer to the question at the top of this post is YES. The 2009 Folie à Deux Ménage à Trois is a very sweet, albeit somewhat thin, wine. It was a little sweeter than I prefer, but my wife liked it quite a bit. Overall nothing spectacular but this is a solid, easy drinker that’s only $7.49. I can see why this wine is quite popular for some. Try pairing with spicy foods to offset the sweetness a bit.
