Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90

(merlot and cabernet franc): Full saturated ruby. Dark cherry, mocha, licorice and strong chocolatey oak on the nose. Fresh and light on its feet, with attractive floral cabernet franc lift to the blackberry and licorice flavors. Finishes with building, tongue-dusting tannins and a lightly medicinal character.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 93

The 2009 Amuse Bouche is laced with freshly cut flowers, sweet spices and expressive red berries. Today, I find the 2009 beautifully expressive, with gorgeous aromatics, layers of fruit and lovely overall balance. This is a decidedly feminine, refined style of California Merlot, but it all works nicely. Layers of fruit continue to blossom through to the structured, powerful finish. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 91

Complex and well-focused, with aromas of currant and roasted herb that lead to layered flavors of black cherry, olive and fresh anise. Finishes with ripe but firm tannins. Merlot and Cabernet Franc.
