(95 points) One sip is all it takes to understand that this is a vital, impressive and possibly profound wine. A blend of 96% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc, it displays the voluptuous richness of a Heidi Barrett wine, but also shows a firmness of character and a structural dryness that elevate it. Exceptionally flavorful in blackberries and cherries, it has tantalizing hints of herbs, olive tapenade and, of course, intensely fine oak. Drink now–2016.

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. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

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.
