    June 29, 2019 - Medium garnet in color. Some floral notes on the nose as well as a bit of a medicinal aroma. Boysenberry, cherry, cassis on the palate. Tannins are smooth, silky and integrated but still offer ample backbone. Medium bodied with a medium finish. What a difference a year makes.

    May 26, 2019 - Very dark red/purple color. PNP, drank 2+ glasses over 2 hours. On the nose, cassis, blackberries, lots of graphite, anise, clay, The palate is full bodied, blackberry, graphite, anise, clay, charcoal, dense and chewy, plenty of round tannin. This has the structure and the fruit is there to age another 5 years. 91+ to 92pts.

    November 3, 2018 - 1-1/2hr. decant. some sediment. Black center, purple edge. Nose of licorice, cherry, cedar, black currants. Showed a bit of Rutherford Cab character. Full, fruit driven, rich, balanced, tannins in deep background. A bit of Rutherford dust at end. This was one of the best BV Tapestries of the past few vintages tasted. In a great place now. Will likely keep for some time. 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot, 1% Malbec.
