Our 2015 Tapestry is a true reflection of the exceptional 2015 growing season with its expressive, vibrant aromas and flavors, along with incredible structure, layered with an underscore of bright acidity that makes this wine incredibly approachable. This is a wine that shows the artistry of blending five Bordeaux-heritage grape varieties grown within the Napa Valley, which contribute layer-upon-layer of flavor complexity. Cabernet Sauvignon imparts a generous core of juicy wild blackberry, dark blueberry cobbler, and cassis, while the Merlot shows a brighter, riper dark cherry fruit character. The Merlot also softens the tannins and adds plushness and texture on the generous and pleasing mouthfeel. Malbec contributed dark plum and briary blackberry notes, while the Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot completed the blend with broad nuances of violet, wild sage, and anise seed. Well integrated notes of graham cracker crust and gingerbread also tantalize your senses from the toasted oak spices - having been aged in new French oak barrels - which heighten the aromas and linger on the finish. Amazingly food friendly.

The 2015 Reserve Tapestry is soft, pliant and supple, all qualities that make it an excellent choice for drinking now and over the next handful of years. Sweet red cherry, plum, rose petal, mint and dried flowers are all laced together in this racy, super-expressive blend from BV. The Cabernet Sauvignon-based Tapestry is one of the hidden gems in the range.

A step up in price, the 2015 Red Blend Tapestry checks in as 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 7% Malbec and the balance Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, all aged in 60% new barrels. It offers a more vibrant bouquet of crème de cassis, damp forest floor, spring flowers, and subtle oak as well as a rich, medium to full-bodied, concentrated style on the palate. It's a step up over the 2014 and is a rocking Cabernet Sauvignon to enjoy over the coming decade or so.
