Palate

Ménage à Trois Luscious exposes the darker side of Pinot Noir. Soft and approachable, it seduces you with its sultry fragrance, voluptuous flavors and devastatingly smooth finish. Succulent black cherry and rich raspberry flavors flirt dangerously with sensual whispers of vanilla, thrilling your palate like never before. A kiss of mocha lingers lusciously on your lips—a reminder of a passionate encounter you won’t soon forget.

Winemaking

In their quest for the deep, seductive Pinot Noir of their dreams, our winemakers went to the dark side. They wanted to craft a wine that captured true Pinot Noir character while delivering a richer, more indulgent experience—a wine that would transcend all expectations. They sourced grapes from premier cool climate vineyards in California’s Central Coast, North Coast and warmer inland sites in Lodi to create a beautifully balanced wine. To the Pinot Noir, they added Petite Sirah for intensity and depth and Syrah for a plush, full-bodied texture. The blend was aged on French and American oak to enhance the deep red and black fruit flavors with smooth, rounded tannins.
