The definite star of the evening with a big, black cherry & cassis experience that filled the palate from front to back. Tannins are still going strong and while this was delicious on the pop and pour a could few hours of decanting would have done this well. Had this wine at the same meal the past 3 years and it was impressive to see how this rounded out and started to move toward its potential. I've had worse wine at higher prices. I'm convinced this an upper echelon wine.

Not bad! Was quite please with the tapestry blend. Out of the glass it had enticing aromas of red fruit with a tinge of floral notes. On the palate it had an elegance and purity that suprised me. Quite smooth, with some mineral and chocolate on the finish.

The 2006 Proprietary Red Wine Tapestry Reserve (a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Petit Verdot) is the finest example of this cuvee I have ever tasted. Flowery, licorice-infused, cassis notes intermixed with forest floor and lead pencil shavings are followed by a layered, impressively built wine with real opulence, lots of red and black fruits, low acidity, and lush tannin. It should drink well for 15+ years.
