2011 Amuse Bouche
Red Bordeaux Blend
- Napa Valley
Community Tasting Notes 3
February 25, 2017 - 4th Saturday group uptown tasting (R&C's): Double blind. Notes of red and black fruit give way to a very odd cheesy jalapeno aroma that takes over and I had a hard time getting past it. Medium tannins with flavors of red fruit and spice on the palate. Tastes better than it smells, but this is weird and not very good...likely a compromised bottle and not representative.

February 20, 2017 - Killer Merlot based blend. loads of rose petals and ripe cherries on the nose. Very well balanced in the mouth starting with dried spices (mostly celery seeds) followed by cherries and something like coffee grounds but I can't put my finger on it. Finishes velvety smooth.
$250 is a lot of money for this wine and definitely not worth it, I happened to have found 1 bottle on "clearance" for $125 which I think is a pretty decent price for a wine of this caliber.

February 19, 2014 - During PNV week, first tasting of the day, great flight of wines from Heidi Barrett.
Merlot blend, dark cherries, plum, earth. Soft on the palate, rounded and plush Merlot. Espresso/coffee on the finish. Medium finish.
Nice wine, especially for the vintage, not worth the price point
