Joe Hache Opimian Society rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

OK ... I write a lot about county wines (well, we moved to Prince Edward County just for the wine!) and inexpensive wines as several years ago we did a blog of 365 wines in 365 days ... all under $10.

Today is a wine outside of those parameters! We get a lot of company down to the county but when Delores's girlfriends come down from Ottawa they always start the first night off with a bottle (or 2 or 3!) of red Ménage A Trois.

This wine exposes the fresh, ripe, jam-like fruit that is the calling card of a good California wine. Three saucy grapes make up the blend. Zinfandel adds a juicy character while Merlot adds a mellowness and Cabernet adds the backbone. This wine is forward, spicy and soft, and this particular blend makes the perfect trio.
