WINE OF THE WEEK

September 29, 2004|By Michael Dresser

2002 Folie a Deux Menage a Trois, California Red Table Wine ($12). Never tried a Menage a Trois? Maybe it's time. This mid-priced blend of three red varietals (hence the name) brings together cabernet franc, merlot and zinfandel in a lively Beaujolais-style wine. It displays vibrant flavors of black cherry, smoked meat and spices, with the aromatics of cabernet franc and the suppleness of merlot. Folie a Deux has also produced a white Menage a Trois - an unusual blend of muscat, chardonnay and chenin blanc - that is also a fine value at $12.
