Winemaker Notes

This is your opportunity to secure an allocation of our best value, most mind-altering wine from our Napa Valley estates. Every year the blend changes. The Vin Perdu 2017 Bordeaux-blend is masterfully composed by Winemaker Heidi Barrett to include: 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Cabernet Franc from the La Sirena, Amuse Bouche, and Fantesca vineyards. Each label features our patented flip lenticular label, and our unique storytelling with each new vintage. Vin Perdu continues to garner remarkable ratings for a second label wine.

About Winery

Heidi Barrett grew up in the Napa Valley in a winemaking family and was destined to become one of California's leading winemakers. It is said that winemaking is a combination of science and art. With a scientist-winemaker father and an artist mother it is no big surprise that Heidi was drawn to the wine industry. With great enthusiasm, a love for what she does, and an incredible wealth of experience, Heidi blends the art and science of winemaking like few can.

In 2002, Heidi partnered with longtime friend John Schwartz to create Amuse Bouche, a Pomerol-inspired Merlot from Napa Valley. Recognizing that the cult wine phenomenon has created an almost aspirational class structure among collectors, the partners decided to make this limited edition wine available to a much broader consumer base. Winemaker Heidi Barrett explains, "We have created Amuse Bouche, a limited edition, superb Pomerol style wine with the added value of limited edition art that is available to consumers through a variety of channels."

93 POINTS JAMES SUCKLING

A pure and fruity red with lovely raspberries and dark chocolate. Medium to full body, round and fine tannins and flavorful finish. 80% cabernet sauvignon and 20% cabernet franc. Drink now or hold

92 POINTS THE WINE ADVOCATE

The fruit for this was harvested on October 2nd and 3rd, just before the 2017 fires. The 2017 Vin Perdu is a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Cabernet Franc. Deep garnet-purple in color, it needs a little coaxing to reveal notes of plum preserves, crème de cassis and Black Forest cake with underlying hints of candied violets, forest floor, cigar box and bay leaves. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is jam-packed with black fruits and savory layers, framed by firm, grainy tannins and bright freshness, finishing long.
