The Mumm Napa Brut Prestige reveals how good the results of blending wines can be, especially when they are being blended for a sparkling wine like this. This sparkling wine is both fruity and spicy, a little sweet without being overly sweet, and pairs well with a number of different dishes. Mumm Napa Brut Prestige is definitely worthy trying if you're willing to buy a moderately priced sparkling wine.
The 2009 Ballentine Chenin Blanc is a dry, medium-bodied wine with a crisp, tart acidity and tangy, citrus flavors with some mineral notes. The alcohol of the Ballentine Chenin Blanc is quite strong so keep that in mind - you're better off keeping it very chilled when drinking. If you let this 2009 Ballentine warm up too much, the alcohol will become too harsh and the wine will be unpleasant to drink.
This is a dry, medium-bodied wine with marked acidity. The Priest Ranch 2007 Sauvignon Blanc doesn't taste nearly as strong as it smells. The flavors are only low to moderate, with some barely detectable apple and maybe tropical fruit as well.
At times it has a slightly bitter aftertaste and it really needs to be cold to be enjoyed properly — as it warms, an unpleasant alcohol burn develops. Unfortunately, the colder it is the more the flavors are suppressed. In the end, this unresolvable tension causes the wine to be too unbalanced.
The Menage a Trois Red has very fruity, almost jammy flavors dominated by red berries, blackberries, and just a bit of plum. It's has a creamy or velvety texture that helps make it very smooth and enjoyable to drink. It's quite approachable as a drier red wine that is easy to drink either alone or with food. My wife praises it by saying that it's a wine that's 'worth the calories' to drink during the evening. The acidity is relatively soft, medium dry, is full bodied, and has dry tannins. It will probably taste better to most people if you give it a chance to breathe for a bit before drinking.
The flavors of the 2007 Menage a Trois California Rose are composed primarily of red berries and cherries. It's definitely something that should be served well chilled. This wine is vary approachable and very easy drinking - it should make a good wine for picnics, cookouts, and other summer meals. This might be a good wine for people who are accustomed to sweeter wines but are interested in shifting to drier red wines.
