2015 Amuse Bouche Proprietary Red Napa Valley California USA
88% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc. 70% new French oak for 18 months. A Pomerol style red by Heidi Barrett, super star winemaker. An irresistible nose of raspberry, cherry, and plum, cocoa, baking spices, vanilla, and dried herbs is backed up by an intense, complexly structured, ripely tannic, smooth, mouthcoating palate that point to a long life ahead. Rich and intense, but graceful. Label artwork by chef Jacques Pépin.
