Wine Advocate | Rating: 94A blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Petit Verdot, the 2012 Tapestry Proprietary Red Blend is largely sourced from the Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper Vineyard and from the Two Dogs Vineyard in Oakville. This is an elegant style of wine, but beautifully aromatic with lots of blue, red and black fruits, spring flowers, high-quality toast (50% Taransaud and 50% Sylvain French oak is used), and a seamless, beautifully opulent, stylish and savory lush mouthfeel.Author: Robert Parker
