Want a sassy cab with attitude?

Looking for a lush, spirited cabernet sauvignon to share the chilly days and nights? Ménage a Trois has a hot suggestion.

Its 2011 cabernet sauvignon selection ($14) is frisky with a touch of sophistication. Grapes for this iconic cab were sourced from three areas within California’s North Coast region: Sonoma, Lake and Napa counties. Sonoma fruit brings lovely finesse to the mix, Lake grapes add swagger and authority while Napa grapes deliver elegance and allure. Each contributes a dash of wonder and excitement and regal characteristics.

Wine wizards here say they believe in living a rich fantasy life. In fact, the richer, the better. This cabernet fulfills that fantasy with holiday flair.

Sexy and seductive in the glass, this ruby-hued varietal exudes dark fruit aromas and black currant notes. Barrel aging in French and American oak releases blackberry and dark plum flavors followed by hints of spice and toast. The finish is long and lingering.

This cabernet is not for newbies so take care in pairing this “Big Boy.” Excellent choices will be prime rib, barbecued beef ribs, burgers with blue cheese, grilled portabella mushrooms and a rich red sauce. After dinner pour with dark and bitter chocolate or cheddar.
