Vinous 88 points - Amuse Bouche’s 2011 Amuse Bouche Napa Valley Red Wine comes across as a bit fragile in this vintage. Sweet tobacco, cedar, leather, mint and dried cherries are all laced together in a soft, delicate wine that needs to be enjoyed over the next handful of years. Crushed leaves, tobacco, mint and dried cherries linger on the finish. There is no escaping how challenging 2011 was, especially for early-ripening varieties such as Merlot.  (Dec 2014)

Collectible wine and collectible art come together to create Amuse Bouche Napa Valley Merlot, 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.” Merging art with our wines was something of a philosophical decision. The former can be enjoyed indefinitely, enduring for many lifetimes. Wine collectors may revel in the subtleties of a vertical collection; but in the end, ’fine wine is the only true art that must be destroyed in order to be fully appreciated.’ We strive to offer you the pleasures of both art forms.
