The 2017 Tapestry is an elegant expression of this unique vintage, showing the true artistry of blending five Bordeaux-heritage grape varieties grown within the Napa Valley, which together contribute multi-layered flavors and complexity. The Cabernet Sauvignon imparts a generous core of blackberry, cassis, and anise, while the Merlot brings vibrant, riper notes of plum and dark cherry. The Merlot also softens the tannins and adds plush rich texture on the mouth pleasing palate. Malbec contributes wild raspberry notes, while the Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot complete the blend with spice and delicate floral nuances of violet and wild sage. Well integrated notes of mocha and molasses also pique the senses incorporated from having been aged in new French oak barrels – which heighten the overall aromatic expression and lengthen the finish. The round, plush tannins provide approachability but with structure and depth, ensuring this wine will live up to its age-worthiness. This is a perfect bridge between old and new world – showing the restraint, elegance and sophistication of Napa Valley and highlighting the 2017 growing season.
