Review: **+ $ Menage a Trois Pinot Noir, California, 2011

Check out today's pricing and retail availability for Menage a Trois Pinot Noir.


Original tasting and review : This is Menage a Trois Pinot Noir, California, 2011, finished at 13.5% alcohol.

In the glass: Medium red cherry.

On the nose: Poured at room temperature and swirled vigorously, shows bright, tangy, slightly brambly cherry fruit.  From the aroma, seems like this will be light and perhaps sweet.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact balanced soft yet tangy pinot noir fruit.  Light on the palate, clean with strawberries and a scrubbing finish. 

In summary: Overall, rates two stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale, with a plus for its tasty balance.  Though it doesn't touch our best value status, this is OK as a simple sipping pinot noir at an outstanding price point.
