2016 Beaulieu Vineyards Tapestry Reserve
Beaulieu Vineyard “BV” was founded by Frenchman Georges de Latour in 1900. Russian born and French educated research enologist André Tchelistcheff's contributions elevated it to an ultra-premium status. Best known for their flagship Georges de Latour Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, Jeffrey Stambor placed his signature on the Tapestry Reserve from the 2016 vintage and his predecessor Trevor Durling crafted the final blend. This Cabernet Sauvignon-dominant red is crafted in a classic Bordeaux style with plenty of briary black currant and juicy blackberry fruit mixed with glycerin and black tea. There are are accents of graphite beneath the polished tannins and seductive ripeness of this wine that will allow it to evolve with age.
