2005 Amuse Bouche Proprietary Blend

Amuse Bouche is a Napa Valley winery that was established in 2002 by John Schwartz and prominent Napa winemaker Heidi Barrett. The winery's flagship Pomerol-inspired Merlot was created in response to Napa's famously elusive Cult Cabernet wines. Each label features a commissioned piece of art by a prominent artist.

The first vintage of Amuse Bouche was limited to 3000 bottles, and was produced from Merlot and Cabernet Franc grown in Oakville. Since then, production has increased to around 8400 bottles a year, and the grapes are now sourced from the eastern hills of Rutherford.

Rating RP 95 - This 525-case blend of 90% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon shows notes of white chocolate mocha black cherry and new barrique smells. It is well-made still somewhat oaky with medium to full-bodied flavors and a nice structured style especially for a Merlot. I wouldn't be surprised to see this put on a bit of weight once some tannin melts away and turn out to be outstanding. RP
