Wine Tasting Notes
The Beaulieu Vineyard Reserve Tapestry Napa Red Blend is a more wild, briary, and exotic expression of this incomparable blend, showcasing the true artistry of blending five Bordeaux-heritage grape varieties grown within the Napa Valley, which come together seamlessly, offering nuance, complexity, and balance. The Cabernet Sauvignon, true to its sauvage namesake exhibits a bounty of dark bramble berry fruits, with notes of blackberry, boysenberry, blueberry cobbler, wild black cherry, and red currant, alongside notes of root spice, ginger, and musky perfume. The Merlot adds vibrancy and riper notes of black raspberry and dark plum, while also softening the tannins, contributing to a velvety-rich, supple mouthfeel. Malbec adds fresh raspberry notes, while the Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot complete the blend with darker berry fruits and savory spices alongside delicate floral and woodsy nuances of black pepper, cedar, forest floor and wild sage. Well integrated notes of mocha and caramel, having been aged in new French oak barrels, heighten the overall aromatic expression, and lengthen the spiced multi-layered finish. The firm, grippy tannins lead to a sense of depth, and will ensure the wine's ability to age for many years to come. A classic example uniting old world techniques with new world winemaking - exemplary of the true elegance, generosity, and allure of Napa Valley.

The mix of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot makes this wine deep and juicy with tons of character. Definitely a solid pick at this price and class. Don't miss out on this one.
Great wine, I bought it from the newsletter sale and I've since stocked my wine fridge with the BV Tapestry.
The Tapestry always blows away my expectations, and this wine is no exception. Expressive and bold. Worth every penny.
