Exceptional quality in the bottle is always paramount, but there’s something extra great about a wine that exceeds expectations in terms of quality and has really cool packaging to back it up.  Winemaker Heidi Barrett is not only innovative in her winemaking, but she also has some of the most creative packaging too. Vin Perdu by Amuse Bouche (and John Schwartz) is a great example and the 3D Holographic label actually animates as you view it from different angles, which adds another element to the drama that ensues before tasting any Heidi Barrett made wine. Holding and Sharing this bottle is very special, and it’s definitely a conversation piece!

Arising from Amuse Bouche, Au Sommet, La Sirena,  Fantesca and Barrett & Barrett vineyards, the 2017 checks in at 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Cabernet Franc.  As one of Napa Valley’s most talented winemakers, some of Heidi’s past and present clients includes Amuse Bouche, Screaming Eagle, Dalla Valle, Grace Family, Revana, David Arthur and Barbour. Garnering Double 93 Point Ratings from both Vinous and Suckling, I strongly recommend  a case of this absolutely stunning Heidi Barrett made wine…

From Vinous, “The 2017 Vin Perdu is racy and voluptuous, not to mention incredibly delicious. Succulent red cherry, rose petal, mocha, plum and spice are all given an extra kick of textural richness in the 2017, a wine that benefits from the addition of fruit that would have gone into some of the higher end wines in a more typical vintage. Plush, opulent and creamy, the 2017 is an absolutely joyous wine to enjoy over the next decade or so.” VINOUS 93 POINTS

From James Suckling, “A pure and fruity red with lovely raspberries and dark chocolate. Medium to full body, round and fine tannins and flavorful finish. 80% cabernet sauvignon and 20% cabernet franc. Drink now or hold.” JAMES SUCKLING 93 POINTS

Vin Perdu Napa Valley Red Wine by Heidi Barrett
Heidi Barrett started making wine for Screaming Eagle in 1992, which received two perfect 100 pt scores (the ’92 and ’97). A 6-liter bottle of ’92 SE set a world record for the highest price ever paid for a single bottle of wine at the 2000 Napa Valley Wine Auction selling for $500,000. A vertical offering of this cult wine went for $650,000 at the 2001 NVWA. Robert Parker has dubbed her the “first lady of wine”. And Heidi still continues to produce World-Class Napa Valley Blends that are Rocking!
