Amuse Bouche 2016, made in the Pomerol style, is a blend of 88% Merlot and 12% Cabernet Franc from our vineyards on Rutherford's eastern hillside in Napa Valley (hint, hint). We managed to produce 750 cases; and we believe this vintage will be remembered as one of Napa's best.

A blend of 86% Merlot and 14% Cabernet Franc, the medium garnet-purple colored 2016 Proprietary Red Blend Amuse Bouche sings of crushed red and black plums, black cherry compote, Ceylon tea, licorice and Indian spices with a waft of potpourri. The palate is medium to full-bodied, exquisitely elegant with firm yet satiny tannins, refreshing, perfumed, spicy and very long with savory notions coming through.

The 2016 Amuse Bouche is very delicate and polished in this vintage, with lovely aromatics from the Franc adding nuance to a core of Merlot fruit. Crushed rose petal, espresso, plum, sweet red cherry, menthol and mocha meld together in this understated, polished wine from Amuse Bouche.
