The 2019 Tapestry Reserve is wild, briary, and exotic, showcasing the true artistry of blending five Napa Valley-grown, Bordeaux-heritage grape varieties together seamlessly with nuance, complexity, and balance. True to its “sauvage” namesake, the wine exhibits a bounty of dark bramble berry fruits, with notes of blackberry, boysenberry, blueberry cobbler, wild black cherry, and red currant, alongside root spice, ginger, and musky perfume. The Merlot adds vibrancy and riper notes of black raspberry and dark plum, while softening the tannins, contributing to a velvety-rich, supple mouthfeel. Malbec adds fresh raspberry notes, while the Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot complete the blend with darker berry fruits and savory spices alongside delicate floral and woodsy nuances of black pepper, cedar, forest floor, and wild sage. Well-integrated notes of mocha and caramel, having been aged in new French oak barrels, heighten the overall aromatic expression and lengthen the spiced, multi-layered finish. The firm, grippy tannins lead to a sense of depth and will ensure the wine’s ability to age for many years to come.
Redcurrants and fresh herbs with some fresh flowers and tobacco. Medium-bodied, soft and delicious with creamy tannins. Citrus at the end. 63% cabernet sauvignon, 15% malbec, 13% merlot, 5% cabernet franc and 4% petit verdot. Drink and enjoy. Why wait?
A nice, plush style, with cassis and cherry compote notes rolling through, laced with singed vanilla and licorice. Reveals good underlying freshness, with an echo of violet through the finish as the fruit plays out. Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2032.
