Food Pairings for Lail J Daniel Cuvee Cabernet Sauvignon California
External Reviews for Lail J Daniel Cuvee Cabernet Sauvignon California
The 2006 J. Daniel Cuvee is living up to my laudatory notes from last year. Black currant, crushed rock, licorice, asphalt, graphite, and chocolate characteristics are present in this full-bodied effort. With excellent purity, depth, and delineation, it should drink beautifully for 20+ years. Robin Lail, one of the top women of the Napa wine scene, is also the daughter of the legendary John Daniel, who did so much to raise the image of Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. Lail and her winemaker, Philippe Melka, were among the first to recognize the potential of a Bordeaux-styled, barrel-fermented and aged Sauvignon Blanc. In both 2006 and 2007, the flagship wine, the J. Daniel Cuvee, is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, from the estate s own vineyard on Howell Mountain as well as purchased fruit, usually from the Vine Hill Vineyard in Yountville. Production in both vintages is just under 1,000 cases.
