Better than the last time I had it but still not a ton going on in the mid-palate. Still, it is tasty enough.

I bought this bottle of Vin Perdu (or ‘lost wine’) from the Costco in Humble a week before Hurricane Harvey. That Costco received four feet of water. The wine guy told me they threw out every single bottle of wine, even everything up in the steel. So happy I was able to save this lost wine from being lost. Blackberry preserves, chocolate, toast, menthol, and leather. Delicious.

Love it! Great job Heidi. Blending at its best. Perfect party wine.

I have nothing to add to Robert Parker's spot-on take on the 2013: "The wine shows rich, saddle-leather-infused coffee and chocolaty blackberry fruit and plenty of robust, bordering on rustic flavors. This is a pedal-to-the-metal, fun wine and very well-made; a big, substantial mouthful of wine..."

Decent, but the legend of Heidi wasn't shown here to it's fullest. I had the Amuse Bouche 2014 Horizontal together. Very linear, with florals throughout start to finish. The Syrah was greatly suppressed, with Merlot taking front and center, but lacked the velvety texture I would hope for from that style.

Loved this but then again is there anything that she doesn't get right? Complex, aromatic, beautiful finish and had great acidity to go with the pork. Clearly a balanced food wine. First time having it and my wife and I loved it.

A beauty for NYE! Loads of Syrah flavor since it was more prominent in this blend.

Lots of layers and red cherry with a nice finish. A fun merlot perdu from #heidibarrett #pnv15
