 Product Description

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.

Our 2014 Tapestry reflects the 2014-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, 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.

We chose specific blocks of reserve-quality grapes that would give Tapestry the combined attributes of fruit expression and softer tannins for relatively early approachability. Half of the Cabernet Sauvignon was grown on the famous western benchlands of the Rutherford American Viticultural Area (AVA) and the balance from the Stags Leap District, Atlas Peak and Coombsville AVAs. The Merlot sourcing was split between our vineyards in the warmer parts of Carneros and the Rutherford Bench. The Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec came from our estate vineyards in St. Helena and Calistoga.
