Jackson-Triggs Entourage Grand Reserve Méthode Classique Brut 2009, V.Q.A., Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, Canada: Terrific quality and taste for the price! Toasty, refreshing and classic.

Folie À Deux Ménage À Trois Zinfandel Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon 2008, California, United States: Vintages Wine Panel: It’s back! This threesome of Zinfandel, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon is fruit-driven, featuring pretty aromas of plum, blackberry and blueberry with hints of spice box and oak. Soft and supple with ample body and poise, this is a great wine to serve at a dinner for two, or more. My note: Juicy purple plums and blueberries with supple, smooth texture and full-bodied weight. Notes of chocolate and dark plums and blueberry jam. Rich and decadent. Knock it back! 665158 13.50% D 750 mL  $17.95 Score: 87/100. January 8, 2011 Full Review
