ICONIC WINE BRAND LAUNCHES MÉNAGE À TROIS SILK, A SOFT RED BLEND

Portfolio now includes a threesome of red blends: Red, Midnight and Silk

St. Helena, CA September 3, 2015 – The iconic wine brand, Ménage à Trois, announced today that it has launched a new wine, Ménage à Trois Silk. A blend of Pinot Noir, Malbec and Petite Sirah, Ménage à Trois Silk is a soft red wine created as a new option for red wine drinkers in the growing Red Blend category.

The Red Blend category (+16%) is outpacing the total wine category growth and is close to becoming a billion dollar category in a scan environment.* “No wine other brand is better positioned to introduce a unique new red blend into the market,” noted Mark Dunlea, marketing director for the brand. “Ménage à Trois is the fastest growing 750 ml wine brand** in the industry and is widely credited as being the brand that created the domestic premium red blend category.”

One year ago, Ménage à Trois introduced Ménage à Trois Midnight – a dark red blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah and Petit Verdot. Consumers loved the red blend alternative, and Ménage à Trois Midnight became the most successful new wine item of 2014.*** A dark inky red wine with a black cherry and currant flavor profile, Ménage à Trois Midnight was crafted for the wine drinker that seeks a robust, rich wine profile. Ménage à Trois Silk was created for the red wine drinker who prefers a softer, lighter-bodied red wine with less oak characteristics.

According to Glenn Andrade, vice president of winemaking, “Silk is bright red ruby in color with bing cherry and raspberry aromatics, a spice component of dried flowers and a soft and graceful mouthfeel.” Dunlea added, “Ménage à Trois Midnight is dark and mysterious; whereas, Ménage à Trois Silk is soft and elegant on the palate.”

Both Silk and Midnight red wine blends retail for $13.99 and are available nationwide. For bottle shots click here and for tasting notes click here.

The Ménage à Trois wine portfolio now boasts 15 exciting offerings. In the past two years, Ménage à Trois has launched three new wines: Silk, Midnight and an Italian Prosecco DOC made from 100% Glera Grapes.
