Winemaker's Notes

The 2004 Beaulieu Vineyard Reserve Tapestry weaves five classic varietals — Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec — into an elegant, beautifully balanced wine. The deep, expressive aromas and flavors are filled with black cherry, briary blackberry, cassis, dark cocoa and cedar character. Pre-fermentation maceration, gentle punch downs in open-top fermenters and in-barrel malolactic fermentation all contributed to the wine's richly textured flavors.

Beaulieu barrel-aged the wine for 20 months, with 70 percent new barrels, to add warm vanilla nuances. For even more complexity, they used a tapestry of different oak barrels; over half were French, with the balance being American, Hungarian and Russian.

This wine makes a delicious complement to seared duck breast, mesquite grilled steak, filet mignon with shiitake mushrooms or roast lamb.

A deep purple (2 of 2), this blend has a cooler, almost reserved bouquet (2 of 4). A young, fruity presentation with big mouth taste, it has a simple and straight forward finish (8 of 10). Bold and young, this wine is approachable and fun to drink. (3 of 4). TOTAL: 15 of 20

Red/purple color. Blackberry, cassis & chocolate nose w/ a finely textured medium body. Similar flavor components. Bordeaux-like for a Napa wine. Young (easily give it 5 more years) quite a special wine. WB36.

Learn About Napa Valley

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right.
