BV Tapestry weaves together Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot. petit verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc from outstanding Napa Valley vineyards. Special reserve lots are vinified separately and aged for 21 months in small barrels. They are then skillfully blended to create a wine that is both elegant and opulent with dark fruit character and plush texture. Beaulieu Vineyard BV Tapestry Reserve Napa Valley Red is a wine that shows the artistry of blending five Bordeaux-heritage grape varieties, which contributed layer-upon-layer of flavor complexity. Cabernet Sauvignon gave the wine its generous core of juicy black currant, dark cherry and cassis, while the Merlot brought through a bright, ripe glazed red fruit character which helped to tame the tannins and add plushness and texture on the mouthfeel. Malbec contributed deep plum and briary blackberry notes, while the Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot completed the blend with nuances of violet, dried herbs and graphite.
