Ménage à Trois releases Bourbon Barrel Cabernet Sauvignon
Limited-edition wine has been aged three months in bourbon barrels
Ménage à Trois, a wine brand that is wholly owned and operated by Napa Valley, Calif.-based Trinchero Family Estates, announced the limited release of Bourbon Barrel Cabernet Sauvignon.
Breaking into bourbon-barrel aged wine was a clear choice for Ménage à Trois. Fresh off the brand's success with Decadence Cabernet Sauvignon, Luscious Pinot Noir and Lavish Merlot, Ménage à Trois introduced a wine with a modern twist on an established classic. The new release blends the brands' legacy of ingenuity with its command of Cabernet to create Ménage à Trois' next varietal, the company says.
“We have heard calls for a Bourbon Barrel offering from Ménage à Trois fans first-hand, and we're pleased to announce this new addition to the Cabernet throne,” said Mark Dunlea, senior marketing director for Ménage à Trois wines, in a statement.
Ménage à Trois Bourbon Barrel Cabernet Sauvignon is inspired by the very best of California winemaking and traditional Kentucky craft distilling, the company says. The limited-edition wine features subtle notes of vanilla, brown sugar and spices meld with the full-bodied flavors of the wine, according to the company. Aromas of berry cobbler lead to jammy blueberry and blackberry flavors cloaked in caramel and satisfying spice on the palate, it adds.
Ménage à Trois Bourbon Barrel Cabernet Sauvignon is packaged in a 750-ml bottle and has a suggested retail price of $15.
