Beaulieu Vineyard Napa Valley Tapestry Reserve 2005 Wine Review (NW)



Tasting notes:

Vibrant currant and plum with cedar accents on the nose

Firm and dense on the palate

More currant and plum on the finish with anise and dry earthy notes

Summary:

The 2005 Tapestry is a classy wine. It has nice flavors along with some depth and firmness suggesting cellaring potential. A classic blend of the five red Bordeaux blending grapes, Tapestry is one of Beaulieu's premium wines and typically runs around $40-50. I've sampled many of the vintages since 1998 and this is 2005 is one of the better wines. Raise a glass!
