2019 Amuse Bouche "LeRoy Neiman", Napa Valley, California, USA

Aromas of spice, tar and cedar on the nose, following through to a full-bodied palate with lots of chewy tannins, yet it follows through fresh and lively. Stones at the end with purple fruit.



63% cabernet sauvignon, 16% syrah, 10% petite syrah, 8% petit verdot and 3% cabernet franc. Mostly field-blended.


Heidi Barrett grew up in the Napa Valley in a winemaking family and was destined to become one of California's leading winemakers. It is said that winemaking is a combination of science and art. With a scientist-winemaker father and an artist mother it is no big surprise that Heidi was drawn to the wine industry. With great enthusiasm, a love for what she does, and an incredible wealth of experience, Heidi blends the art and science of winemaking like few can.

In 2002, Heidi partnered with longtime friend John Schwartz to create Amuse Bouche, a Pomerol-inspired Merlot from Napa Valley. Recognizing that the cult wine phenomenon has created an almost aspirational class structure among collectors, the partners decided to make this limited edition wine available to a much broader consumer base. Winemaker Heidi Barrett explains, "We have created Amuse Bouche, a limited edition, superb Pomerol style wine with the added value of limited edition art that is available to consumers through a variety of channels."
