Wine Spectator 90 points - Glides along, offering an alluring mix of dense, dark blueberry, melted black licorice, grippy loamy earth and tannins that give the flavors traction. Impressive on the finish. This will appeal to those who like to chew on their reds. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. Drink now through 2022. 18,500 cases made.-JL

Vinous 88 points - Beaulieu’s 2010 Reserve Tapestry comes across as a bit heavy in this vintage. There is good up-front depth and immediacy, but some of the persistence drops off on the mid-palate. Mocha, cloves, licorice and tar flesh out on the finish.
Wine Advocate 90 points - The deep ruby/purple-tinged 2010 Tapestry Reserve, a Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, is earthy and spicy displaying hints of herbs, underbrush, sweet black currants and oak in the background. It is a medium-bodied, elegant 2010 to drink over the next 10-12 years. (Oct 2013)
