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


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!
