Beaulieu Vineyard Reserve Tapestry 2014
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
James SucklingComplex aromas of blackcurrants, tobacco and stones. Some oyster shell. Medium to full body, very fine tannins and a polished, refined, textured finish. A wine that harkens back to its traditions.
Wine EnthusiastWith all five major Bordeaux red varieties represented, this blend is a majority Cabernet Sauvignon. An herbal, broadly defined entry of black cherry, plum and moderate structure define it, as a moderate structure of juicy tannin gives it grip.
Wine SpectatorExhibits a rich core of earth- and gravel-laced currant and dark berry flavors, supported by firm tannins and a cedary oak aftertaste that needs time to settle. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2026. 18,000 cases made.
