BV Tapestry Reserve 2010 Napa Valley
Tapestry Reserve was created so that Beaulieu Vineyards, with their prime Napa Estate vineyard land could produce a world class Cabernet-based Bordeaux blend. The winemaking team now consists of Jeffrey Stambor with Consulting Enologist Michel Rolland and they have been making amazing strides. Grapes are sourced from throughout the valley, primarily Rutherford and the balance from the Stags Leap District, St. Helena and Calistoga AVAs. The blend is 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot and 3% each Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. It was aged 22 months in 75% European oak (French and Hungarian) 25% American oak, 50% new barrels. Both Robert Parker and the Wine Spectator scored this wine 90 points. The Spectator said "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."

    Comments about BV Tapestry Reserve 2010 Napa Valley:

    I've never had a bad Tapestry. The '10, like the '05, was not the best vintage, but it was still a good wine. But if you can find a '99, '01, '06, or '07, let me know! Those are in the WOW! category.

        Comments about BV Tapestry Reserve 2010 Napa Valley:

        Many of the 2010 Napa Cabs have this green, stalky character to them... but not this one! It exudes more red than black fruit on the nose with chocolate, vanilla and sweet spices filling out the framework. Soft and lush, this is superbly drinkable wine with a lengthy fruit filled finish.

            Comments about BV Tapestry Reserve 2010 Napa Valley:

            This BV reserve was a pleasant surprise, The smoothness and aroma stood out, and it went down like silk. It's a 'red' I.e mix of several grapes including Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot , Malbec and cab Franc--but if you're a regular Cabernet Sauvignon drinker you'll love this. I usually stick with pure cabs as opposed to blends , but this one was a nice surprise.
