2007 Amuse Bouche, Merlot 5L
93 points
Dominated by Merlot, but with a small amount of Cabernet Franc included in the blend, this limited production, boutique offering hits all the right spots on the palate and olfactory receptors.  It's dark
ruby/purple color is accompanied by
sweet aromas of plums, black cherries, soy, and oak.  The wine is fleshy, textured, flamboyant, lush, and delicious. Amuse Bouche’s finest effort to date.

"The brilliant 2007 is inky/ruby/purple in color and is accompanied by sweet scents of melted chocolate, licorice, forest floor, and gobs of black cherry and cassis fruit, a wine with a superb texture, an
opulent, flamboyant mouth feel, and a stunning finish. It should drink nicely for a decade or more. (Not yet released) This boutique operation...seems to have hit its stride. There are about 500 cases
each of the 2006 and 2007, which are virtually all Merlot."

"Supple and beautifully layered, with black cherry and toasty vanilla aromas and currant, spice and roasted sage flavors that start delicately and then build to a rich, ripely tannic finish. Merlot and
Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2015. 500 cases made."

" Pomerol-style wine from Napa Valley produced by legendary winemaker Heidi Barrett, this Merlot based red is darkly vibrant, exuding aromas of blackberry and black plum. On the palate, the wine
expresses earthy, forest-floor flavors or wild mushroom alongside juicy berry fruit, roasted coffee and bittersweet chocolate."
