The finish to opening night always results in either new or old world Cabernet. 2019 is no exception!

The nose reveals, ripe, ruby, slightly stewed & candied fruits of; blackberries, black raspberries, dark cherries, blueberries, baked rhubarb, strawberries and dry cranberries. Dark & milk chocolate, mocha, caramel, light vanilla, anise, dry crushed rocks, dark rich, moist soil, steeped tea leaves, dark fruit cola/liqueur, mint, dry herbaceous, bay leaf with fresh, dark, red, blue flowers with violets and hints of lavender.

The body is full and lush. Tannins are well resolved, dark, tarry soft and still has 5-7 plus years of life ahead. The structure, tension, length and balance have hit harmony. She’s an elegant beauty. Ripe, ruby, slightly stewed & candied fruits of; blackberries, black raspberries, dark cherries, blueberries, baked rhubarb, Thompson raisins, strawberries and dry cranberries. Dark & milk chocolate, mocha, salted caramel, light vanilla, anise, medium, dark spice, dry underbrush, dry crushed rocks, used expresso grounds, cognac notes, brunt creme brûlée, dark rich, moist soil, limestone, volcanic minerals, steeped tea leaves, dark fruit cola/liqueur, mint, dry herbaceous, bay leaf with fresh, dark, red, blue flowers with violets and hints of lavender. The acidity is excellent. The finish is, elegant, polished, well balanced, harmony fruit & earth, polish and persists on and on.

The right 20 year old BV Tapestries are such a pleasure to sip!
