AMUSE BOUCHE 2019 NAPA VALLEY CULT WINE PROPRIETARY RED

From Vinous, “The 2019 Amuse Bouche, a Right Bank-inspired Merlot/Cabernet Franc blend is superb. Expansive, sweet aromatics are immediately seductive. Silky tannins wrap around a core of plum fruit, sweet tobacco, chocolate, spice and leather. This wonderfully expressive, elegant Napa Valley red hits all the right notes in a mid-weight, nuanced style that is all class.” Vinous 96 Points – Antonio Galloni, January 2022

From James Suckling, “This is a beautiful, juicy, merlot-based red with melted-chocolate and berry aromas and flavors. It’s full and creamy with lovely balance and attractive character, showing freshness and layers of fruit. Violets and berries at the end. Merlot and cabernet franc. Gorgeous. Drink or hold.” James Suckling 95 Points

Winery Notes, “Amuse Bouche 2019 crafted in the Pomerol-style, is a blend of 92% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc from our vineyards in the east Rutherford Hills of Napa Valley. 2019 was as close to an ideal growing season as we have had in recent years. We expect this vintage to rank among the best from the Amuse Bouche estate.”
