Wine Review: This colored dark ruby red blend opens with a black cherry and black plum bouquet with hints of pencil lead, black raspberry. and pomegranate. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round and fresh. The flavor profile is red currant, graphite, and cranberry blend with notes of oak and mocha. We also detected hints of black pepper, black olive, and black coffee. The finish is dry, and its dusty moderate tannins linger and last for quite a while. The Tasting Panel would pair this red blend with a grilled hanger steak or with Ken’s Italian marinated steak tips. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: True to its "sauvage" namesake, the 2019 Tapestry Reserve exhibits a bounty of dark bramble berry fruits, with notes of blackberry, boysenberry, blueberry cobbler, wild black cherry, and red currant, alongside roospice, ginger, and musky perfume. The Merlot adds vibrancy and riper notes of black raspberry and dark plum, while softening the tannins, contributing to a velvety-rich, supple mouthfeel. Malbec adds fresh raspberry notes, while the Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot complete the blend with darker berry fruits. and savory spices alongside delicate floral and woodsy nuances of black pepper, cedar, forest floor, and wild sage. Well-integrated notes of mocha and caramel, having been aged in new French oak barrels heighten the overall aromatic expression and lengthen the spiced, multi-layered finish. The firm, grippy tannins lead to a sense of depth and will ensure the wine’s ability to age for many years to come.
