Amuse Bouche

2022 Amuse Bouche Napa Valley Red Blend

A later-than-usual harvest in Napa Valley, the result of unseasonably cool temperatures, set us back a bit in our operations. Yet, here we are with an exciting Amuse Bouche 2022, featuring original artwork by Napa Valley's own Beverly Wilson. Hard to believe it has been 20 years since our inaugural release! Amuse Bouche 2022, crafted in the Pomerol-style, is a blend of 91% Merlot and 9% Cabernet Franc from our vineyards in the east Rutherford hills of Napa Valley.

To reserve your allocation of Amuse Bouche 2022, please complete the order form below, email, or phone-in at 707-251-9300. Your lithograph will ship within a few months, your wine in the fall.

Each allocation of Amuse Bouche 2022 will come with a hand signed and numbered, limited-edition lithograph, which we produce in France on Rives paper (25" x 29").

We also produced a limited number of 1.5 Liter magnums, numbered and signed by Heidi, available on a first-in basis. Absent from the order form are our 5.0 liter hand-etched and painted jeroboams. We produce 10 of these each vintage. If interested, please contact Eileen directly at


The Artist: Beverly Wilson

Artist Beverly Wilson painting Golden Hour

Beverly crafts her oil paintings, recognizable for their bold composition and unique strokes, with twenty to thirty layers of paint. As a student of renowned artist Richard Diebenkorn at UCLA in the early 1970s, Beverly was drawn to the work of expressionists and colorists. With their inspiration, she embarked on a creative evolution and developed a vibrant style of her own. Her piece entitled "Golden Hour" captures in distinct colors that special time of day when the sun begins to set over the vineyards, tying in the universal rhythms of rural life and the magical countryside.

James Suckling
2021 Vintage
"Pretty nose with cherries, cassis, baking spices and some chocolate on the nose. It's medium- to full-bodied with plush tannins. Well-balanced with an intense core of juicy cherries, herbs and spices intermingling. Focused finish with excellent length."
- James Suckling, November 2023
Antonio Galloni
2021 Vintage
"The 2021 Amuse Bouche is pliant, racy and super-expressive. Succulent red cherry, red plum, spice, blood orange and tobacco are all dialed up. This Merlot-based blend is a total charmer. Dollops of Cabernet Franc extend the finish."
- Antonio Galloni, December 2023
