Beaulieu Vineyard Reserve Tapestry 2018 - 6 750ml
Bordeaux Red Blends from Napa Valley, California
- Pick-up only
Winemaker Notes: The 2018 Tapestry offers a beautiful rusticity in this elegant expression of this tremendous vintage, showing the true artistry of blending five Bordeaux-heritage grape varieties grown within the Napa Valley together to contribute multi-layered flavors and complexity. The Cabernet Sauvignon imparts a generous core of bramble berry fruits with blackberries, blueberries, black cherry compote, and cassis, with hints of anise. At the same time, the Merlot brings vibrant, riper notes of plum and dark cherry. The Merlot also softens the tannins and adds a plush texture with notes of black currant and plum on the palate. Malbec contributes fresh wild 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 violet, cedar, forest floor, and wild sage. Well-integrated notes of mocha and molasses also pique the senses incorporated from having been aged in new French oak barrels – which heighten the overall aromatic expression and lengthen the finish. The firm, velvety tannins provide structure and depth, ensuring this wine will live up to its age-worthiness. This is a perfect bridge between the old and new world – showing the restraint, elegance, and sophistication of Napa Valley and highlighting the 2018 growing season.
James Suckling 94 Points This is layered, with chewy tannins and attractive blackcurrant and blackberry character. Chocolate and walnut highlights. Full and flavorful, but not heavy in any sense of the word. Cabernet sauvignon, merlot, petit verdot and cabernet franc. Better in a year or two.
Wine Spectator 92 Points This delivers a pure beam of cassis, plum purée, and anise notes, offering a flash of sweet spice on the finish. Moderately toasty, with a very polished mouthfeel. Crowd pleaser. Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Merlot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2030.
Wine & Spirits 92 Points Trevor Durling blends this wine from five Bordeaux varieties, focused on parcels of cabernet sauvignon and merlot on the Rutherford benchlands, with contributions including Coombsville and Carneros. He detours to Howell Mountain for cabernet franc before returning to Beaulieu’s estate vineyards in Rutherford for petit Verdot and Malbec. It comes together in a savory wine with delicate flavor complexity and gentle Rutherford grandeur. Something a little salty and sweaty brings to mind cilantro, pointing the wine toward carne asada with salsa Fresca.
Wine Enthusiast 92 Points This blend of all five major Bordeaux red varieties leads with 78% Cabernet Sauvignon. Licorice, toasted oak, and black plum and berry wrap around intense structure and rounded richness, finishing in tobacco and plum.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 91 PointsThe 2018 Reserve Tapestry Proprietary Red Wine is blended of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 8% Petit Verdot, 5% Malbec, and 1% Cabernet Franc. Deep garnet-purple in color, it bursts with open-knit notes of black cherry preserves, warm cassis, redcurrants, and hints of forest floor, clove oil, and Ceylon tea, with a waft of wild sage. The full-bodied palate has a soft texture of ripe, fine-grained tannins and lovely freshness, finishing savory.
Jeb Dunnuck 90 Point The 2018 Red Blend Tapestry is a perennial good value and has up-front darker currant and plum fruits and notes of tobacco, chocolate, and spicy oak. Medium-bodied, firm, and focused on the palate, it shows the style of the vintage nicely and should keep for upwards of a decade. Rating: 90+
