Winemaker's Notes

Limited Allocation Available. Wine future to be delivered in August 2005.

Heidi Barrett, winemaker for several of the hottest cult wines in California (including Screaming Eagle, Dalla Valle, Grace Family, Paradigm), has been referred to by TIME magazine as "The Wine Diva of Napa". Her latest creation is sure to become the next cult classic out of Napa Valley.

Amuse Bouche is a Napa Valley Merlot based wine that will rival its greatest cross-Atlantic counterparts, such as Chateau Petrus and Chateau Le Pin. Wine critics and customers alike have raved about the 2002 (which sold out quickly).

Early reports from the winery indicates that 2003 (our second vintage of Amuse Bouche Napa Valley Merlot Wine) will be a spectacular one. The warm summer and dry harvest should yield a wine of great concentration and elegance.

Due to the extremely hot summer in California, the Napa Valley Merlot and Cabernet Franc grapes were harvested in early September.

With each six-bottle case of Amuse Bouche wine, each customer will receive a one-of-a-kind, signed and numbered (1-500), limited edition lithograph (76 x 100 cm) produced from the original label art. The Guy Buffet lithographs generally have a retail value of $1,500.

The 2003 vintage will be released from the winery in August 2005.

The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...
