The 2009 Reserve Tapestry is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Dark red fruit, flowers, licorice are some of the notes that emerge from this sleek, beautifully balanced red. As good as this is, it doesn’t have the personality of the estate’s Cabernets. Still, I like the deep, radiant, fleshy finish. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2017.
I got this at $37. a bottle here & I know it sells for much more elsewhere, good buy at this price. The wine has what I call that liquid velvet feel when you hold it in your mouth and than gently swallow. Notes of fruit along with a sort of oaky finish, it can only get better with time but hard not to drink right now.
In 1900, Georges de Latour arrived to find Napa Valley planted to orchards of walnuts and prunes. His vision for making wines that would rival those of Europe helped establish what has become one of the most important wine regions the world over.
When Georges and Fernande de Latour first traveled to the heart of Napa Valley in 1900, Fernande took one look at the lovely Rutherford expanse and exclaimed "beau lieu," or "beautiful place."
From the ingenuity behind surviving Prohibition, to the crafting Napa Valley's first "cult" Cab, to the construction of our new Georges de Latour Private Reserve Winery-discover the exciting history of Beaulieu Vineyard year by year with a pictorial timeline.
