Black-cherry notes and a plush midpalate texture reveal a generous blending of Merlot, while Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec add violet, forest loam and graphite notes, as well as deep saturated color and rich texture. licorice, forest loam and graphite nuances, as well as deep hues and texture. Tapestry elegantly demonstrates the art of blending varietals to create a wine that combines multilayered flavors with supple, graceful tannin structure.
External Reviews for Beaulieu Vineyard Tapestry Reserve
The deep ruby/purple-tinged 2010 Tapestry Reserve, a Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, is earthy and spicy displaying hints of herbs, underbrush, sweet black currants and oak in the background. It is a medium-bodied, elegant 2010 to drink over the next 10–12 years.
A savory take on Napa Valley cabernet sauvignon (72 percent, in a blend with merlot, franc, petit verdot and malbec), this layers scents of roses over plums, prunes and mushrooms. The tannins are chocolate-rich, heady and evolved, giving the wine softness without being overtly sweet. Instead, it’s lean and accommodating to roast lamb.
Glides along, offering an alluring mix of dense, dark blueberry, melted black licorice, grippy loamy earth and tannins that give the flavors traction. Impressive on the finish. This will appeal to those who like to chew on their reds. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. Drink now through 2022.
