    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2007 Beaulieu Vineyard Reserve Tapestry weaves together five classic varietals into an opulent, complex wine. The deep, expressive aromas and flavors offer generous layers of black cherry, briary blackberry and cassis character. Enticing floral, licorice, forest loam and graphite nuances are revealed as the aromas open and the flavors expand across the velvety palate. Tapestry elegantly demonstrates the art of blending varietals to create a wine that combines lush, multilayered flavors with supple, graceful tannin structure.

    Varietal Blend: 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, 2% Malbec, 1% Petit Verdot

    Critical Acclaim:

    Shows excellent structure, intensity, depth and concentration, with a mix of spice, dried currant, blackberry, mocha, cedar and licorice. Full-bodied, at points rustic and chewy, yet also elegant and refined, ending with earthy graphite tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Best from 2011 through 2020. 18,901 cases made.

    Made from all five classic Bordeaux varieties, this is a rich, softly tannic and delicious wine. It brims with jammy blackberry, dark chocolate and sweet cedar flavors in a sweetly chewy texture that hints at further ageability. Drink now-2015.

    The 2007 Reserve Tapestry, a proprietary blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, reveals gracious, reserved notes of blue, red and black fruits, licorice, underbrush, forest floor and background oak. The wine is medium to full-bodied, elegant and still young and reserved. Give it 2-3 years of bottle age and drink it over the following 15-20.

    The Wine Advocate

    A tightly built, relatively cool-climate style, this blend is mainly cabernet sauvignon (81 percent) with smaller amounts of four Bordeaux varieties (merlot, franc, malbec and petit verdot). The fruit is rich without any excess weight, the tannins yielding a mineral warmth. This is an earthy, savory red to serve with roast lamb.

    Red w/Attitude (7/26/2011)
    This is a classic Bordeaux blend from BV. Dark ruby color and slightly opaque. Good nose with mild black raspberry and just a hint of menthol and black cherry. On the palate, the wine is medium bodied, balanced, and definitely fruit forward. The flavor was spicy, with black cherry, raspberry and mild black pepper. It had a prolonged (slightly dry) finish with relatively soft tannins. Definitely a great wine....I highly recommend it!

    Great wine! Color, nose, mouth-feel, finish - It all comes together and can be enjoyed now or later.

    Bought this at Costco for $35. Went back the next day and it was all gone. Should have bought a half case at least. Out of my price range normally. Decant for half hour. Try to maintain 60 degrees. These things increase your experience two fold on this bottle. Drinks like an $80 - $100 bottle.
