Product Description

The 2014 BV Tapestry is a wine that shows the artistry of blending five Bordeaux-heritage grape varieties. Cabernet Sauvignon gives the wine its generous core of briary blackberry and cassis expression, while the Merlot in this vintage tames the Cab's tannins and adds a plush mid-palate texture. Malbec contributes deep plum notes, while Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot completed the blend with nuances of rose, forest loam, and graphite. Aging in 60 percent new oak barrels balanced the wine's impressive depth of varietal expression with toffee and spiced nuances.

Varietal Composition: 76 Cabernet Sauvignon, 13 Merlot, plus Petit Verdot, Malbec, and Cabernet Franc (percentages not specified)
Appellation: Napa Valley AVA
Aging: 60 percent new oak barrels

"Blended of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon and 13% Merlot with dollops of Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc, the 2014 Reserve Tapestry Proprietary Red Wine opens with crème de cassis and blackberry tart notes over hints of menthol, incense and Christmas cake, plus a waft of dark chocolate. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is flamboyant, rich, velvety and seductive, with a lively lift in the mid-palate and a long, spicy finish. 18,000 cases made." -LPB, 10/31/17

90 Points - Vinous
"The 2014 Tapestry Reserve, Beaulieu Vineyard's Cabernet Sauvignon-based red, is forward, supple and fruity. Succulent red cherry and plum fruit are pushed forward. The blending varieties add suppleness and mid-palate softness. Although not that different from the other wines, the 2015 is nicely done." -AG, Mar/2018
