This brand was launched as a blended red wine and has become the #1 Red Blend and #1 Red Wine. Priced at $10, the name is appealing to consumers. Over time multiple other varietals have been added including a white blend and a Pinot Noir sourced from the Clarksburg, North Coast and Central Coast wine regions.

A tasting room is open daily at 7481 St. Helena Highway in Oakville. The wines are in widespread retail distribution and available through the winery's online website store.

2013 Ménage à Trois California Pinot Noir

13.9% alc., pH 3.60, TA 0.56, RS 6g/L, $14 (usually discounted). 40% Central Coast, 35% Clarksburg, 25% North Coast. Winemaking details not known, but the wine is said to be, “Enhanced with French and American oak.” · Moderate reddish purple color in the glass. Pleasant aromas of cherry and oak lead to a middleweight styled wine with flavors of cherry, strawberry and cranberry. Rather elegant and fruit forward, with gentle tannins, a compliment of oak, and a very slight sweetness to the fruit. Overall, an innocuous wine that offers plenty of Pinot character at a very reasonable price. Score: 88. Reviewed March 12, 2016 ARTICLE »
