1996 Beaulieu Vineyard Tapestry Reserve

Wine Description

Dark ruby color. This wine has a quite concentrated bouquet with scents of currant and cherry, black olive and herbs, vanilla-oak and roasted red peppers. Rich, mineral-inflected flavors show lots of ripe cherry, coffee and licorice. Firm but not harsh in the mid-palate, with supple tannins and integrated vanilla-oak, the 1996 Tapestry tastes fine now, but should age well for at least a decade, the sweeter, more gentle Merlot softening some of the more powerful Cabernet tannins.
