Beaulieu Vineyard-Tapestry-reserve-Cabernet Sauvignon-Merlot-Cabernet Franc-Malbec-Petit Verdot-Napa Valley-California-2007-$34.35-A nose of dark fruit and spice, dark purple in color.  A young, but tight kitchen sink blend, full bodied.  Blackberry, currants, dark chocolate with licorice and spice notes, decant now but buy more and save for a few years before drinking to get it’s best.                  RP-91                 WS-93                 WE-92                   CR-92                 Good with steak, chicken, pasta.
