Amuse Bouche Napa Valley Red 2012
Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Proprietary Red Amuse Bouche offers juicy blue and red fruits along with surprisingly noticeable acidity, good cleanliness and purity, and a style that falls somewhere between a French Bordeaux and a Napa red wine. Although still youthful, it displays a potential for plenty of aromatic complexity, medium to full body, and savory flavors. The wine has yet to reveal its considerable potential, so give it several more years of bottle age and drink it over the following 10-15 years.
Wine SpectatorFlamboyant and rich, but structured, with polished aromas of blackberry and toasty oak and layered flavors of cherry, dusty herb and black olive. Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2019. 575 cases made.
