BV Tapestry Reserve 2012 Napa Valley

Item Number: 28 20 321 12

Customer Rating Based on a scale of 1 to 5 glasses


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. This 2012 is a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Cabernet Franc, 15% Merlot, 3% Malbec and 3% Petit Verdot aged 22 months in a mix of American and European oak barrels, 60% new. Robert Parker scored it 92 points and said "The impressive 2012 Reserve Tapestry, a blend of Bordeaux varietals, is more elegant and slightly less intense than the Private Reserve. It offers up sweet black cherry fruit notes intermixed with licorice, spice box and dusty, loamy soil undertones. Medium to full-bodied and deep with loads of ripe fruit, low acidity and sweet, velvety tannins, it can be enjoyed over the next decade."

Great Vintage!
I am a huge fan of Beaulieu Vineyard wines. From low to high tier, their wines provide a consistent, pleasurable drink. Tapestry is a wine I always try to keep stocked. The 2012 vintage all I anticipated it to be. Keep up the great wine making BV!

This wine is blended and aged just the way I like it: smooth, moderately full with a nice finish. It is also very reasonably priced at Wine Express. It may improve with cellaring but I never can wait long to enjoy it.

We are familiar with all of the wines ordered. We particularly like Meritage. We got the Sterling in a CAB 6-pack and ordered a case when it went on sale.

Always a tremendous value. We've tasted it against $250+ wines and it reminds us we don't need to spend that much to enjoy a beautiful red blend.

Very good wine - still drinking the 2006. 2012 a very good year for California wines. Good ratings.
TIMOTHY B on Nov 9, 2015
BV Tapestry has always been a favorite of mine. With the 2012 vintage and Tapestry being a high percentage of Cab Sav, I can't wait to try the wine and let the rest sit for a few years.
