2018 Napa Valley Red Wine Blend
Crafted in the Pomerol style, Amuse Bouche 2018 is a blend of 89% Merlot and 11% Cabernet Franc from our vineyards in the east Rutherford hills of Napa Valley. The 2018 growing season was ideal — long and mild, with very few viticultural obstacles. Amuse Bouche 2018 exudes flavors of bright black plums, kirsch, red licorice, mocha beans, melted dark chocolate, fresh mushrooms, violets and clove spice. We commissioned renowned New Orleans artist James Michalopolous to create our 2018 label art, a culinary-inspired piece entitled "Fish Swish".

Collectible wine and collectible art come together to create Amuse Bouche Napa Valley Red Blend, 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."
