Menage a Trois Rose 2012 by Folie a Deux

P1040230
It’s refreshing to have a chilled wine when the weather is hot but I’m having trouble selling my drinking partner on whites. Maybe a Rose would do the trick? We tried a Tavel Rose last summer that was predominantly Grenache and the “dry minerality” as described in the tasting notes was not our preference. This summer we’ll try Menage a Trois Rose, a blend of Merlot, Syrah and Gewurztraminer.
It’s a gorgeous Saturday on one of the first weekends of summer, not too hot, not too humid. We serve the chilled Rose on the deck and keep it cool with the handy Vacu Vin. The nose is bursting with strawberry, raspberry, and fresh flowers. On the palate, some honeydew melon mingles with the berries. Crispness is tempered with a touch of honey. A moment of sweetness lingers on the lips as the Gewurztraminer has the last word.
Overall, I found Menage a Trois Rose to be a refreshing change from our usual reds and a good value at about $11. Sadly, my drinking buddy is not that fond of it, but on the upside, all the more for me!
From the bottle label:
Think pink! Who says three’s a crowd? Some love our Red, some love our White, everyone loves our Pink.
