2006 BV Tapestry- RP93 for under $25
For my first post I want to bring to my loyal readers’ attention a great deal for a major Napa producer. I brought this wine to Chapeau! in San Francisco ($20 corkage) and although it’s very young now, it shows great potential. It’s complexity is currently hidden by strong tannins right, but give it three or four years and it’s going to be very good. It’s dense, big and fruity.
BV Tapestry sells for $45+ at the grocery but right now, CityWineCellar.com has it for $24.99. That’s a crazy price. Pick up a few bottles, put it away for a while, and you will be rewarded.

“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…”
