Beaulieu Vineyard~BV~Napa Valley Tapestry 2010 Red Wine Reserve, $41.99-$55.99, 93+ points, appeared a rich midnight purple/red trending deep ruby toward the clear rim at the leggy glass wall.
Profuse aromas of cedar, cinnamon, black cherry cordial, and violets were outstanding.
The full body was luscious, carried good acidity, comfortably layered tannin, black fruit with blueberry, coffee notes, as well as reflecting the flavors of the aromas, all of which impressed.
Finished on the trailing palate with eucalyptus, mint, spice, and accents of the 14.8% alcohol.
This is an exceptional wine, a bit pricy, but compared to what? Beaulieu Vineyard~BV~Napa Valley Tapestry 2010 Red Wine Reserve is dense, rich, fruity, and nuanced!
