Heidi Barrett seemed destined for winemaking fame. Like many of the greats, she was born into the industry, but her work at Screaming Eagle speaks for itself. The 2016 Proprietary Red Blend from Amuse Bouche, shows a master at her craft. Crushed plums, cherry compote, Ceylon tea and Indian spices enthrall in this exquisite, medium to full-bodied wine with firm, satiny tannins and a long, savory finish. Another enviable offering from this label.
A blend of 86% Merlot and 14% Cabernet Franc, the medium garnet-purple colored 2016 Proprietary Red Blend Amuse Bouche sings of crushed red and black plums, black cherry compote, Ceylon tea, licorice and Indian spices with a waft of potpourri. The palate is medium to full-bodied, exquisitely elegant with firm yet satiny tannins, refreshing, perfumed, spicy and very long with savory notions coming through.
