Crafted in the Pomerol style, Amuse Bouche 2018 is a blend of 92% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc from vineyards in the east Rutherford hills of Napa Valley. The producer picked their fruit in three stages on 9/17, 9/29 and 10/18. The 2018 growing season was ideal — long and mild, with very few viticultural obstacles. Amuse Bouche 2018 exudes flavors of bright black plums, kirsch, red licorice, mocha beans, melted dark chocolate, fresh mushrooms, violets and clove spice.
