Beaulieu Bv Tapestry 2005
Our 2005 Beaulieu Vineyard Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon expresses velvety layers of cherry, plum, rose and chocolate captured from vineyards throughout this renowned valley. Toasty oak from barrel aging adds warmth to the red fruit aromas and lingers on the palate. Enjoy this Cabernet Sauvignon with steak grilled over grape canes or seared beef tenderloin with whold grain mustard. Aroma – red fruit, rose, toasty oak Body – full bodied Flavor – cherry, plum, chocolate Food Pairings – grilled steak, beef tenderloin
Aromas of dark cherries and Rose follow thru with good amount of ripe berry: cassis and chocolate. Balanced structure: soft tannins and good acidity. A little bit of chew in the mouth. the wine is ripe, easy to drink and a great price.
one very very nice cab. a little overpriced imo, compared to what's available out there, but a wonderful red: smooth, balanced, medium notes, dark ripe fruits. will only get better in the cellar
A very good cab, not overpowering and easy to drink.
Had it with dinner on New Year's Eve, '07. Smooth, little bit of fruit. Nice with beef and fish.
An excellent price/value wine with complexity in both smell and taste. Black cherry, with a hint of licorice. Smooth overall with a lovely after taste that lingers.
Good Cali cab. Black cherries and licorice on the nose. A good deal of oak and spice on the palate with a juicy rubbery finish.
This is a pretty good representation of a Napa Cab. It is rougher around the edges than some of the more expensive versions but you still get the typical Napa feel. There is a lot of fruit on the nose and black berry and fresh cherry on the palate. The tannins could use some more integration and the finish is slightly astringent.
External Reviews for Beaulieu Bv Tapestry
Gushing with berry and new wood character - perhaps a bit too much - but it's rich and powerful, with lots of good tannins and a long finish. Definitely a modern-style Napa Cab. Best after 2006.
Ripe, round and smooth, with a core of coffee, currant, sage, cedar and spice. Gains nuance and complexity on the finish where the flavors run deep ad polished. Drink now through 2008.
One of the most prestigious wines in California, the 1994 version shows an impressive core of spicy currant and mineral-laced Cabernet flavors emerging from chewy tannins, picking up cedary oak, coffee and sage notes. Most enjoyable if cellared into 1999 to 2004.
A rich and concentrated wine from a vintage that is looking better with every bottle I open. The black cherry fruit here is intense, and the wine is blessed with a velvety, lingering finish.
Dark cherry red appearance. Medium-bodied. Highly extracted. Moderately tannic. Cassis, cherries, brown spice. Full toasty nose leads a dusty mouthful of concentrated layered red fruit flavors with generous oak spice notes lingering. Not fleshy, but still very generous and structured in its proportions.
Good ruby-red. Cassis and blackberry fruitiness complicated by cedar and coconut oak notes. Juicy and tightly wrapped, but quite suave, with excellent concentration and nicely integrated oak. Opened in the glass to show a lovely silky texture. Long, firmly tannic finish. A strong vintage for this wine.
A blend of all five Bordeaux varieties, the Tapestry is a soft, rich wine. It’s full-bodied and satiny in red and black cherry, currant, anise and cocoa flavors.
