Amuse Bouche is one of the handful of projects Heidi Barrett is involved in these days. The 2009 Merlot includes a dash of Cabernet Franc. Dark red berries, flowers, spices, new leather and licorice are some of the notes that flesh out on the mid-palate. Sweet, silky tannins frame the finish. This pretty, generous wine is best suited to drinking over the next few years. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2017.
