2009 Vin Perdu by Amuse Bouche
The composition of Vin Perdu 2009 is 46% Merlot, 21% Syrah, 15% Petit Verdot,  14% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Cabernet Franc from the Amuse Bouche, La Sirena, Au Sommet and Revana estates. Because the percentages of the Vin Perdu components vary from year to year, each vintage is truly unique.

2009 Modus Operandi Vicarious Red
The enticing nose layers scents of vanilla, caramel and blood orange over a foundation of red currant and black raspberry fruit.  In its plushness, grandiose generosity and downy softness, this wine has basically an irresistible mouthfeel, which delivers sapid flavors of cassis, black cherry, violet and cedar. For such deep, intense flavors, the wine has a dazzlingly airy presence, and the taste of the finish lingers long after the wine has disappeared.  The soft tannins and ripe fruit of this pillowy red call for medium-hearty fare like braised poultry, veal, pork chops or roasts, and quickly cooked cuts of beef or lamb.  44% Merlot, 34% Petite Sirah, 14% Cabernet Franc & 8% Cabernet

2007 Palazzo Red
Continuing in the style and quality of my previous vintages, this is a beautifully complex wine, with wonderful layers of rich fruit, soft tannins, and a lush, supple texture on the palate! Merlot makes up the lion share of the blend, giving the wine its sheer power & strength, silky texture and beautiful layers of dark cherry & blackberry fruit. The Cabernet Franc adds brightness, acidity and ‘floral overtones’ to the wine… with the Cabernet Sauvignon adding structure and character to the wine… with hints of smoke, cocoa and espresso bean to the finish. 68% Merlot, 24% Cabernet Franc, 8% Cabernet Sauvignon.
