Menage a Trois (Part Deux)

We tried the Menage a Trois red table wine, a 2004 red table wine made by Folie a Deux, (Napa) the other night. It costs about $10.
To kick off our new rating system, (listed below) I definitely give this wine a solid two stars. The first thing that comes to mind is that this wine is JUICY. It smells like plums and opens up the minute it hits the glass to an explosion of cherry-blackberry. Like the white version of Menage a Trois, this wine gets its name because it's a blend of three grapes, Zinfandel from Amador, and Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc from Napa.
I'm not surprised that we enjoyed this wine, considering we liked the white version, too.

To review, here is our star system.
One star * - Not awful, but I probably wouldn't bring it to your house for dinner, nor would you finish the bottle.
Two stars ** - OK. A decent table wine. Something you'd drink on a Tuesday night when your expectations aren't very high.
Three stars -- Yummier. There's something that sets this wine apart. You'd recommend it to a wine snob friend.
Four stars -- You are jumping around, nodding your head and doing a little wine dance. This wine speaks to that old part of your brain that senses sharks and detects amazing wine. You share this wine with your closest friends and hide it otherwise.
