With the chocolate richness of new oak and the density that has come to define modern Napa Valley’s reds, this wine is still vinous, giving a more classical sense of Cabernet. The structure is tight, the scents of violets, cedar and black olive adding to that traditional impression. It smells earthy, like a vineyard. To decant several hours before roasting venison with blueberries and wild mushrooms.
A blend of all five Bordeaux varieties, the ’05 Tapestry is a soft, rich wine. It’s full-bodied and satiny in red and black cherry, currant, anise and cocoa flavors.
The 2005 Proprietary Red Tapestry Reserve is a blend of virtually all the Bordeaux grape varietals planted in Napa. It is elegant and floral, with spice and black and red currant fruit, medium to full body, good purity and texture. It seems to have approached its plateau of full maturity, but its freshness, concentration and overall equilibrium suggest it should stay there for at least another decade. (RP)
