(a blend of merlot and cabernet franc): Good full red-ruby. Aromas of dark berries, licorice and violet, plus a strong measure of cinnamon oak. Sweet, supple and easygoing, with rich, lush dark berry and chocolatey oak flavors. A surprisingly forward blend for the vintage, but there are plenty of sweet oak-driven tannins for support.

The 2010 Amuse Bouche Red Blend (93% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc from Rutherford vineyards) is considered to be a California version of a top-class Pomerol. It possesses a deep ruby/purple color as well as a sexy, mocha and black cherry-scented bouquet with a hint of background toast. Round, juicy, supple-textured and opulent, it is hard to resist this medium to full-bodied red's abundant quantities of fruit, glycerin and character. Enjoy it over the next decade.

Tight as a drum but offering rich fruit underneath, with notes of currant, loamy mineral, tomato leaf and olive. Features lively acidity and firm tannins on the finish. Hands off for now. Merlot and Cabernet Franc.
