2018 Beaulieu Vineyards 'Reserve Tapestry' Proprietary Red Napa Valley
You’ll find layer upon layer of complexity woven into the blending of five Bordeaux-heritage grape varieties with Cabernet Sauvignon at the core. A touch more Merlot this year tames the tannins and adds plushness to the mid-palate while Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot add threads of plum, rose, forest floor and graphite.

This is layered, with chewy tannins and attractive blackcurrant and blackberry character. Chocolate and walnut highlights. Full and flavorful, but not heavy in any sense of the word. Cabernet sauvignon, merlot, petit verdot and cabernet franc. Better in a year or two.
