Ménage à Trois White 2013

As no doubt you are aware, a Ménage à Trois is basically a love triangle.  Folie à Deux, on the other hand, is a delusion or madness shared by two persons who are closely associated.  So, are the folks at Folie à Deux winery suggesting that their involvement in winemaking is a shared delusion and that their relationship with their wines is, in fact, a love triangle?  If so, I love it!  And the fact that this white blend is composed of 3 grape varietals – Chardonnay, Muscat, and Chenin Blanc – carries the metaphor one step further.  Even better!

Vineyard: Ménage à Trois by Folie à Deux
Varietal: White Blend
Vintage: 2013
Appellation: California
Price: $17.49

Notes:   The color of this California blend was a pale straw hue.  The bouquet held scents of peach and grass.  Acidity seemed good, and I thought heft on the palate was on the cusp of medium and light.  Alcohol was 13.5%.  As far as taste was concerned, I found flavors of peach, bitter orange and grass with warm spice notes.  It was a decent, fairly uncomplicated blend and surprisingly dry for a wine containing both Muscat and Chenin Blanc as well as Chardonnay.  Have you had this wine before?  If so, I’d like to know what your thoughts are on food pairings.  I just opened the bottle and sipped it as my little reward for a long day at work.
