The 2019 Tapestry Reserve is a more wild, briary, and exotic expression of this incomparable blend, showcasing the true artistry of blending five Bordeaux-heritage grape varieties grown within the Napa Valley, which come together seamlessly, offering nuance, complexity, and balance. The Cabernet Sauvignon, true to its "sauvage" namesake exhibits a bounty of dark bramble berry fruits, with notes of blackberry, boysenberry, blueberry cobbler, wild black cherry, and red currant, alongside notes of root spice, ginger, and musky perfume. The Merlot adds vibrancy and riper notes of black raspberry and dark plum, while also 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. A classic example uniting old world techniques with new world winemaking - exemplary of the true elegance, generosity, and allure of Napa Valley.

This smooth and velvety wine offers a rich, supple mouthfeel and ripe, indulgent black currant and black-cherry flavors. Light tannins counter the wine's richness, for good balance.

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. 20,877 cases made.

Slightly better, the 2019 Tapestry Reserve (which was first made in 1990) offers lots of red and blue fruits as well as notes of tobacco and dried herbs. It's more focused, concentrated, and structured than the Napa Valley Cabernet and, I suspect, will evolve for 10-15 years.

The 2019 Red Wine Tapestry Reserve is bold and explosive to the core. A burst of dark red cherry/plum fruit, spice, menthol, licorice and pomegranate give this Cabernet Sauvignon/Malbec -based blend plenty of exuberance.

A true Bordeaux-inspired blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Malbec, 13% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot, the 2019 Tapestry Reserve Red Wine is overtly fruity up front, with bold raspberry notes dominating the nose. Yet on the medium to full-bodied palate, those notes are tempered by silky tannins and bright acids that give it a taut, juicy feel and a mouthwatering finish.
