Our 2014 Tapestry reflects the 2014-growing season with its dense, powerful aromas and flavors, with bold structure. This 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 briary blackberry and cassis expression, while we increased the amount of Merlot this year to tame the tannins and add plush mid-palate texture. Malbec contributed deep plum notes, while Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot completed the blend with nuances of rose, forest loam and graphite.

Complex aromas of blackcurrants, tobacco and stones. Some oyster shell. Medium to full body, very fine tannins and a polished, refined, textured finish. A wine that harkens back to its traditions.

With all five major Bordeaux red varieties represented, this blend is a majority Cabernet Sauvignon. An herbal, broadly defined entry of black cherry, plum and moderate structure define it, as a moderate structure of juicy tannin gives it grip.

The 2014 Tapestry Reserve, Beaulieu Vineyard's Cabernet Sauvignon-based red, is forward, supple and fruity. Succulent red cherry and plum fruit are pushed forward. The blending varieties add suppleness and mid-palate softness. Although not that different from the other wines, the 2015 is nicely done.

Blended of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon and 13% Merlot with dollops of Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc, the 2014 Reserve Tapestry Proprietary Red Wine opens with crème de cassis and blackberry tart notes over hints of menthol, incense and Christmas cake, plus a waft of dark chocolate. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is flamboyant, rich, velvety and seductive, with a lively lift in the mid-palate and a long, spicy finish. 18,000 cases made.

The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Tapestry offers more purity of fruit as well as notes of black raspberries, currants, smoked herbs and damp earth. It's charming, plump, attractive and nicely balanced, with a ready to go feel.
