2018 Amuse Bouche Proprietary Red Napa Valley California USA
A barrel sample, the 2018 Proprietary Red Blend Amuse Bouche is composed of 92% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it comes roaring out of the glass with vibrant notions of crushed red and black plums, blackberries and mulberries plus touches of garrigue, cloves, pencil lead and cedar. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is laden with bags of energetic black fruit, framed by firm, ripe tannins and lovely freshness, finishing long and crunchy.
