Ménage à Trois Silk 2015
Smooth talking is something we do rather well here at Ménage à Trois —especially when it comes to wine. So indulge us for a moment, and close your eyes. Now imagine the exquisitely soft, smooth sensation of silk as it slides across your skin. Gives you chills, doesn’t it? With this in mind, we wanted to create a wine that was seductive and soft, a wine with a texture so lustrous and smooth, it could only be called—what else?—Silk. Brimming with alluring aromas, full-bodied, bright red fruit flavors, and a marvelously smooth mouthfeel, Silk exposes the softer side of Ménage à Trois.
Vineyard and Winemaking
Once upon a time, men traveled thousands of miles over land and sea for the Orient’s most prized treasure: silk. Its delicate, exotic texture was so desirable, silk literally changed the world. Fortunately, our winemakers didn’t have to travel far in their quest for silk; instead, they found the treasure they sought in marine-influenced vineyards in California’s Central Coast, North Coast and Lodi-Delta appellations: Pinot Noir with seamless cherry flavors, Malbec with velvety softness and Petite Sirah with alluring depth. Dreaming of liquid silk, they assembled their blend, and used unique fermentation methods to craft a delicately textured, ultra-smooth wine with supple tannins. Grapes were cold soaked, then gently pressed to silky perfection. To further illuminate the wine’s unique texture and flavors, the blend was enhanced with a hint of sweet, spicy French and American oak. The result? The smoothest, softest, silkiest wine you’ve ever tasted. You’d travel thousands of miles for just one sip, but lucky for you, you don’t have to.
