Beaulieu Vineyard Reserve Tapestry 2019
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Station Plaza Wine
Nice fruit definition to this wine with blueberry and blackberry aromas and some toasted oak. Medium-to full-bodied, creamy and balanced with chocolate and hazelnuts. Bright and vivid with just a touch of alcohol. Drinkable now, but better in a year or two.
The 2017 Reserve Tapestry Proprietary Red Wine is a blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Malbec, 4% Petit Verdot, 3% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc. It was aged in French oak, 60% new, for 22 months. Deep garnet-purple colored, it comes galloping out of the glass with energetic fruity scents of crushed black plums, mulberries, redcurrants and blackberries plus suggestions of camphor, cinnamon stick and chocolate box. The full-bodied palate is rich and decadently fruited, offering up tons of black fruit preserves and spicy layers with a taut yet approachable frame, finishing with a minty kick. 22,275 cases were made.
Wine & Spirits
Tapestry focuses on cabernet sauvignon while bringing in four other Bordelais varieties. In 2017, it’s heady and concentrated, layering ripe fruit flavors that range from sour cherries to deep-toned blueberries. There’s a hint of smoky persimmon to highlight the wine’s massive build.
Ripe and forward in style, with cherry and raspberry puree notes streaming through, infused with dark tea and licorice hints and ending on a mocha note. Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2023. 22,275 cases made.
