James Suckling Review
Perhaps the best Tapestry ever made with currant, chocolate and berry aromas and flavors. Full body, layered and rich with a wonderful depth and generosity yet always focused and poised. Better in 2019 but already delicious.
Wine Tasting Notes
Tapestry reflects the growing season with its expressive, powerful aromas and flavors, along with a bold structure and density. This is a wine that shows the artistry of blending five Bordeaux-heritage grape varieties that contribute layer-upon-layer of flavor complexity. Cabernet Sauvignon gives the wine its generous core of juicy black currant, dark cherry and cassis, while the Merlot brings through a bright, ripe, glazed red-fruit character which helps to tame the tannins and add plushness and texture on the mouthfeel. Malbec contributes deep plum and briary blackberry notes, while the cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot complete the blend with nuances of violet, dried herbs and graphite.
76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot, 4% Malbec, 2% Cabernet Franc

I have been a fan of Tapestry for many years. This vintage is one of the best I have ever tasted.
