Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: September 11, July 26, September 12 and March 7. Menage A Trois Red 2011 Wine Review
Don't buy it for the whimsical name: buy it because it's good! Loaded with black fruit and dark chocolate aromas. Smooth and full-bodied with a lovely juiciness for many dishes. A blend of zinfandel, merlot and cabernet sauvignon grapes. Food pairings: saucy pulled-pork sammies, braised short ribs with chocolate and rosemary.

Melanie rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review: Delicious and very fruit-forward. Lots of jammy Zin flavors coming through. True reflection of warm California growing regions. Paired this with BBQ ribs last night and it was delightful. Would definitely recommend as a perfect pairing for BBQ meals.
Nina rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review: Zinfandel, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon blend. I loved this blend! In the glass dark cherry color, semi opaque. On the nose there are very bright aromas of berries, berry pie, chocolate, vanilla. On the palate dry, juicy, each grape variety brings taste to harmony. Very fruit forward, lots of jam-like fruit, spicy and soft, delicious trio. Rich flavours and tannins of Cab give this wine nice backbone. Very rich finish with raspberry and blackberry flavors.
This popular crowd-pleaser is a lively threesome of Zinfandel, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. There’s enough pleasure to go around here, with hedonistic berry pie, cassis, lilac, vanilla and milk chocolate. Ripe, round and juicy with an ultra-smooth texture. Source: Vintages Wine Panel
