Description

The winemaking for each varietal in the Beaulieu Tapestry 2014 wine was tailored to best capture the personality of both the vintage and specific vineyard block. Cold soaking of the destemmed grapes, gentle punch-downs in open-top fermentors and in-barrel malolactic fermentation all contributed to this wine’s richly textured flavors. Aging in 60% new oak barrels balanced the wine’s impressive depth of varietal expression with toffee and spiced nuances.

Tasting Notes

  • Appearance Appearance
    Deep ruby-purple color
  • Nose Nose
    Dense, powerful aromas and flavors. Malbec contributed deep plum notes, while Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot completed the blend with nuances of rose, forest loam and graphite.
  • Palate
    Generous core of briary blackberry and cassis expression, while Merlot was used to tame the tannins and add plush mid-palate texture. Blending of five Bordeaux-heritage grape varieties contributes layer-upon-layer of flavor complexity.

Sommelier Review

“The impressive Tapestry, a blend of Bordeaux varietals, is more elegant and slightly less intense than the Private Reserve. It offers up sweet black cherry fruit notes intermixed with licorice, spice box and dusty, loamy soil undertones. Medium to full-bodied and deep with loads of ripe fruit, low acidity and sweet, velvety tannins, it can be enjoyed over the next decade.”
