Wine Spectator 88 points - Tight as a drum but offering rich fruit underneath, with notes of currant, loamy mineral, tomato leaf and olive. Features lively acidity and firm tannins on the finish. Hands off for now. Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2016 through 2021. 575 cases made.-TF  (Jun 15 2013)

Vinous 90 points - (a blend of merlot and cabernet franc): Good full red-ruby. Aromas of dark berries, licorice and violet, plus a strong measure of cinnamon oak. Sweet, supple and easygoing, with rich, lush dark berry and chocolatey oak flavors. A surprisingly forward blend for the vintage, but there are plenty of sweet oak-driven tannins for support.  (May 2013)

Wine Advocate 92 points - The 2010 Amuse Bouche Red Blend (93% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc from Rutherford vineyards) is considered to be a California version of a top-class Pomerol. It possesses a deep ruby/purple color as well as a sexy, mocha and black cherry-scented bouquet with a hint of background toast. Round, juicy, supple-textured and opulent, it is hard to resist this medium to full-bodied red’s abundant quantities of fruit, glycerin and character. Enjoy it over the next decade. (Oct 2013)

Producer
Collectible wine and collectible art come together to create Amuse Bouche Napa Valley Merlot, a joint wine venture with Heidi Barrett and John Schwartz. This Pomerol-style Merlot/Cabernet Franc blend is made from some of the best grape sources in the Napa Valley. Amuse Bouche wine aspires to rival its greatest cross-Atlantic counterparts, such as Chateau Petrus and Chateau Le Pin. As winemaker for several of the hottest cult wines in California, and referred to by TIME magazine as ”The Wine Diva of Napa”, Heidi Barrett is always looking for new challenges. Heidi explains, ”We have created Amuse Bouche wine, a limited edition, superb Pomerol style wine with the added value of limited edition art that is available to consumers through a variety of channels.” Merging art with our wines was something of a philosophical decision. The former can be enjoyed indefinitely, enduring for many lifetimes. Wine collectors may revel in the subtleties of a vertical collection; but in the end, ’fine wine is the only true art that must be destroyed in order to be fully appreciated.’ We strive to offer you the pleasures of both art forms.
