Beaulieu Vineyard Reserve Tapestry 2005
The 2005 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, violet and cedar character. Cabernet Sauvignon's deep berry and cassis flavors are the firm backbone of the blend, while Merlot adds round, fleshy black cherry and cocoa notes. The Cabernet Franc perfumes with hints of violets and the Petit Verdot and Malbec enhance the ruby color and spiciness.
This wine makes a delicious foil for mesquite-grilled steak, filet mignon with shiitake mushrooms and roast lamb.
