Wine Advocate 92pts: "The 2010 Amuse Bouche (93% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc) is considered to be the 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 full-bodied red's abundant quantities of fruit, glycerin and character. 92-94 points."


Vinous 92-94pts: "Firm yet well-integrated tannins support the fruit in this nicely delineated, chiseled wine. Plums, dark cherries, mint and licorice all jump from the glass as the 2010 continues to open up. The combination of juiciness and structure is highly appealing. The long growing season produced a gorgeous, beautifully balanced wine. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2018."

Producer's Notes: "The 2010 Amuse Bouche (93% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc) was harvested on October 19 and is currently resting in a combination of Taranssaud, Radoux and Gamba cooperage awaiting its March 2012 bottling date. We plan to release the wine to you in the Fall of 2012. 575 cases were produced.

The 2010 vintage is graced by an exceptional treasure: the final art of Tony Curtis. We had the pleasure of working with Tony prior to his death to produce two wonderful pieces of art, Cocktails for Two and Oriental Fabric. Sadly, these two pieces - and the signed and numbered lithographs - turned out to be Tony's final contributions to his illustrious career. In honor of his legacy and our passion to balance art with wine, each six pack of Amuse Bouche 2010 will feature both works, 3 bottles of each label. The enclosed postcard displays both images."
